Dressing: Whisk all the ingredients, except the herbs, together and season. The herbs are stirred in just before serving.

Chickpeas: Heat the oil in a sauté pan and add the chickpeas. Cook for 10 minutes, tossing frequently, then add the spice mix and cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt, then cool.
