Directions
Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the chickpeas on the pan and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Stir the chickpeas every 1/2 way through to help them cook evenly.

Serve the salad right away or wait 10 - 15 minutes for the flavors to meld. Enjoy
