Tomato, Chickpea and Fresh Basil Salad

I know I threw a curve ball last week when I posted a slow cooker recipe the first week of August, so I thought I would lighten things up this week with an easy summer salad. This salad is about as simple as it gets. Add all the ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy! This is a great salad to make ahead of time and have in the fridge all week for a quick snack. The large amount of basil gives each bite an incredible freshness and flavor.
