Roasted Chickpeas Salad

This plant-based salad is wow! because after the first bite I was amazed by the taste. I mean it was just a salad after all but the flavors in the chickpeas and the sauce gave it all the reasons to appreciate it!

Roasted chickpeas never tried them until I made this salad! Where was I all this time? Thank God I had these leftover chickpeas from the other day when I made hummus recipe. And I had to think about how to use them before they go bad.

What makes this salad pop is the spices on the roasted chickpeas and the tahini sauce! Do you agree? Let me know if you make this, I mean you should!
