A great side dish is something to be celebrated. Its one of those things you can eat with anything, bring to picnics or just sit in the corner eating it all by yourself. This great salad is pure heaven!
Sweet potatoes and chickpeas are a match made in heaven, two of my favourite ingredients tossed in a glorious zesty dressing, if you don’t believe me give it a try yourself and tell me what you think.
