When Big S Farms sent us some recipes (from a now inactive blogger), one really jumped out. It wasn't at all vegan, but it wasn't at all tricky to get it there. The result is a grown-up chickpea salad  that's ridiculously simple to throw together, with notes to satisfy every part of your tongue: creamy mayo, fresh cilantro, and sweet cinnamon. It's ready to be stuffed into pita, slapped on a bun, or served on a bed of greens,
