Chickpeas, mixed greens, tomatoes, and a homemade vinaigrette combine in this easy salad recipe that’s ready to eat in just 10 minutes. This Mediterranean-inspired dish makes a lovely light lunch or dinner side salad. Bulk it up by adding crumbled feta cheese and grilled shrimp or roasted chicken. One tip to save washing a bowl: Whisk your vinaigrette ingredients together in the bowl you plan to serve the salad in, and then toss in the greens, beans, tomatoes, and onion. Tarragon is aromatic with a robust flavor and tender leaves—it’s worth using fresh here because the flavor is simply better than dried.
