Curried Chickpea & Apple Salad

This satisfying, spicy-sweet Curried Chickpea & Apple Salad is a cousin of the ever popular Chickpea Sunflower “Tuna” Salad. This delicious combo of creamy, spicy, savory and sweet just can’t be beat! It’s excellent in a lettuce wrap, atop on apple slices, or on crackers or bread. Honestly I just eat it straight out of the bowl with a spoon.
