This simple salad combines the loved ingredients of chicken and chickpeas with Middle Eastern seasonings, such as sumac, for a delightful twist.
Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice made from the crimson berries of the sumac tree.
For the chicken:
Beverage pairing: Château du Rouët Côtes de Provence Rosé, France. The recipe’s combination of the tart, the herbal, the bitter, and the sweet all wrapped up in a simple, natural package is a shout-out for rosé. Complex flavors in the food demand a simple, refreshing wine. This lovely mixture of Grenache and Syrah from the south of France has light, perfumed berry notes, but enough dimension in the mouth to stand up to the chickpeas and chicken.
