Chickpea & Tomato Salad

We made this delicious salad for lunch today from Green Lite Bites. Reminds me of a lighter version of a caprese salad, since it doesn't have all the cheese.

1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 c. chopped fresh basil (about 25 leaves)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. apple cider vinegar
2 t. olive oil
1/2 T. honey
Pinch of salt

1. In a large bowl, combine chickpeas, tomato & basil.
2. In a smaller bowl, make the dressing by combining the garlic, vinegars, oil, honey & salt.
3. Toss salad with dressing and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
