Chickpea Pasta Salad with Oranges

Bright citrus brings a refreshing flavor to this less traditional pasta salad. Chickpeas hold up nicely in the fridge if you need to store it. For the best texture, choose your favorite in-season citrus. Clementines or blood oranges would be excellent in place of navel oranges at the right time of year.

    • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
    • ¼ cup orange juice
    • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
