This is my own creation, I LOVE chickpeas, but I like them spicy hot. So, before you make this recipe, remember we all have different tastes! This is a VERY adaptable recipe, you can add what you want, adjust the heat level, decrease the salad dressing, you name it, this is a very flexible recipe! I serve this over hot toasted pita bread, or just as a side dish. I've replaced the asparagus with sliced zucchini, little broccoli florets, whatever is in the fridge... Note that preparation time does not include the 1 hour resting time in the fridge.
