Spicy Roasted Chickpea and Eggplant Salad

Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Vegan

Spicy Roasted Chickpea & Eggplant Salad is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner.  The chickpeas and eggplant are roasted first before adding them to romaine lettuce, red onion, grape tomatoes, and vegan feta cheese.  I drizzled a creamy honey mustard dressing over the salad before serving.
