  3. I have made something similar with black beans but no pasta. My favorite is a green salad with mandarin oranges and avocado.

  9. I love chickpeas, seriously I can’t get enough of them. I haven’t added pasta to my salad in awhile. Guess its time to change that. Thanks for the great recipe Mary :)
