Start by cooking your pasta of choice according to package instructions. Once it is fully cooked carefully drain, rinse, and set aside.
Next, combine all ingredients for the homemade vinaigrette, mix well, and set aside.
Wash then prep all remaining ingredients according to the ingredient list.
Combine the pasta, chickpeas, vegetables, and vinaigrette in a large serving bowl and gently toss with salad tongs.
This pasta salad is best when made in advance so the flavors have time to meld. This will make your pasta salad SO much more flavorful. Make it at least 2-3 hours in advance, or ideally the night before serving. Store in an airtight or covered container in the fridge for up to five days.
