Chickpea and Tomato Salad

We're all big fans of chickpeas so I knew when I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I had to make it. My daughter gobbled it up! It was a nice refreshing salad especially during this crazy heat we've been in having in the northeast. I can't wait for more of our fresh cherry tomatoes to ripen and make this again. I know we'll be eating this salad a couple more times this year!

15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
bunch of basil, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp olive oil
drizzle of honey

In a large bowl, combine the garlic, vinegars, oil, honey and salt. Add in the chickpeas and tomatoes and stir to coat with dressing. Sprinkle with basil and stir. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to allow flavors to combine.
