Couscous Salad with Chickpeas

This couscous salad recipe is a combination of roasted and fresh ingredients, which gives it a fun crunch!

To those who are on a strict calorie restriction, you can skip the feta cheese and sugar. The sugar is used to caramelize & balance the sour taste of the cherry tomatoes. Yet, it can be left out.
