How to make a spinach and arugula salad with Indian spicy chickpeas:

I don’t like raw onions, but in this recipe the onions are roasted. They have a slightly caramelized / barely charred flavor that is tempting to snack on and perfect for garnishing a salad.

The chickpeas are sautéed in oil and garlic with crisp mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Just enough to give them the flavor they need to carry the salad.

A squeeze of lemon juice is enough to dress these salads. It’s just a simple flavor to contribute to the salad that doesn’t detract from the chickpea and roasted onion superstars.
