Arrange chickpeas on a baking sheet and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, curry powder, and a generous pinch of salt. Roast for 20-30 minutes, shaking the pan frequently. When finished removed from oven and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl or cup, make the dressing by mixing whisking all ingredients.
  4. When squash and chickpeas are cool, assemble the salad by putting the radicchio, squash, and chickpeas in a bowl. Top with fresh thyme and Italian Herb Salad Toppers. Finish with salt and pepper to taste.
