Did you know that chickpeas are high in protein and fiber? Blah blah blah they're not even the star of this show, they're just the background that allows the salty flavors and juicy textures of the artichoke hearts, black olives, and cherry tomatoes to stand up and shout. We don't even have to do any weirdo experimenting to make this vegan, it's just naturally that awesome!
adapted from Vegan Express

6 oz black olives, drained and chopped
15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 c cherry tomatoes, halved
