Ingredients:  
For the salad:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
Kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

For the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon minced shallot
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
For the salad: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the beans and spread out into a single layer. Cook without stirring until lightly browned on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir, add a big pinch of salt, and spread the beans out again. Cook for another 2 minutes, then stir and spread out again as needed, until golden-brown and blistered on all sides. From start to finish, this will take about 6 to 7 minutes total.

Remove from the heat, add the cumin, and toss to coat. While the chickpeas are cooking, make the vinaigrette.

For the vinaigrette: Whisk the oil, vinegar, shallot, a pinch of salt, and a few grinds of black pepper together in a large bowl.

Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, and parsley to the vinaigrette. Toss everything to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more salt and pepper as needed.
