|Perfect accompaniment to Gardein's Fish Filets.|
Meanwhile, a few days ago at Whole Foods, I found a small tub of sun dried tomatoes for $1.37- lowest priced fancy ingredient next to a 99 cent can of chickpeas. I sampled the chewy Fruit Roll-up styled texture, loving sweet and savory blending together. Since I already planned to be delicious Gardein from the freezer, I wanted to prepare a light, simple entree. Sun Dried Tomato Chickpea Salad was born under hunger and creative freewill. The medley proved to be chrmn serenade of curry flavors and degrees of chewiness. Definitely adding either crunchy pumpkin seeds or hearty walnuts next time. Plenty of summer tasting sun dried tomatoes to go round.

|Sorry about the infuriating orange tint, but it turned out refreshing and delicious.|
|Perfect yum on a hot day. I suggest maybe even grilling your Gardein (if Gardein mood strikes), and have this chickpea salad as a solid plate date!|
