Warm Chickpea Salad

This dish features the bright flavors of Provence, highlighting artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh rosemary. If you double the recipe, you can have an excellent lunch served at room temperature the next day. Offer the chickpea salad on a bed of mixed baby greens (mesclun) for a light and colorful presentation.

I think I adapted it from one of Mollie Katzen’s cookbooks. This salad keeps very well, and is great to have on hand for lunches and snacks.
