Za’atar is a spice blend that is available in most supermarkets. It is unique in flavor, but not overpowering when used in moderation. Sumac is a less popular spice that comes from a flower and can be found in many supermarkets and all spice shops.
This salad dressing makes the salad! If your sundried tomatoes come in olive oil use that oil instead of regular olive oil and it will be even more flavorful. Make double the amount of dressing and use it as a marinade for chicken or in a cold pasta salad!
I highly recommend adding a protein to this chickpea purple sprouts salad if it not a side dish to many other dishes. It would go so well with grilled steak or chicken.
The chickpeas can be made up to 4 days in advance and then you can whip this dish up in minutes. Also you will want those chickpeas in your fridge to throw into other salads or just eat as a snack!
Place the chicken on top of the Indian flat breads for a surprisingly filling and beyond delicious flavor p arty!
