- Add chickpeas, celery, and scallions to bowl; toss to evenly coat with vinaigrette; cover and refrigerate until flavours meld, at least 2 hours and ideally overnight.
- Remove garlic cloves. Just before serving, add celery leaves, tomatoes and basil; toss gently to combine. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Top with freshly shaved parmesan. Serve over or tossed with romaine.
