Chickpea Salad Wrap

What's better than an awkward Christmas dinner with your family?

Trying to drive during boxing day. I'm not sure what it is, but slightly reduced prices seem to bring out the crazy in people. All I wanted was to go to my boyfriends house to feed his cat, I had no intention of buying anything. Stopping at a stop sign is NOT grounds to continually honk at me.

So after an exhausting day, and a cheesecake-filled, chocolate injected Christmas, I needed this wrap. Chickpeas make for a great post-Christmas lunch.
