You know those packages of colorful, tiny tomatoes that you see in the store or the farmer's market sometimes. Well, I saw a multicolored mixture of tomatoes, and I knew that a tiny tomato recipe was in order. I wanted to make an appetizer-esque recipe topped with pretty green scallions. What can I say, the colors just drew me in.

Preparation

  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
