Thats probably why I enjoyed it more as it has literally been months since I ate a good frittata. As I said I didnt have much…

This is by far the most easiest and tastiest summer salad you could make. I spend all summer eating and making salads and I am sick of the same old leafy base. Its boring. So I decided to whip up something different. We are a house of chickpeas and I love cooking with them. However I forget how nice they are on their own.
