Chickpea & Asparagus Salad
Since I was only able to harvest 9 skinny stalks of asparagus this season (the fact that we had no rain in March or April didn't help my garden at all), I made a simple salad with a lovely can of chickpeas.
I had some basil pesto in the freezer from my summer harvest last year and tossed the pesto with the rinsed garbanzos and the fresh asparagus (which I sauteed in a little olive oil).
Served at room temperature with some grilled chicken. Simple and delicious.
PS that is not chocolate sauce on the chicken! It's balsamic glaze!
It was a match made in heaven.
