Chickpea salad with spinach and sweet potatoes

Kichererbsen-Spinat-Salat -2You don´t win friends with salad, you don´t win friends with salaaaad….I must admit, I have to disagree with Bart.

I hate cabbage when it is cooked but love raw coleslaw. Does that make any sense? It´s almost as weird as the fact that I make basically all my recipes with tomatoes but I don’t like tomato soup.
