For the Dressing:
For the Chickpea Croutons:
Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Toss the chickpeas on a rimmed baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, the garlic powder and sea salt and pepper. Place in the oven and let bake for about 40 minutes, tossing them every 10 minutes or so.
In a blender, combine all the ingredients of the dressing and process until smooth.
In a salad bowl, combine the kale and add some dressing. Mix well, while massaging the kale with your hands. Top with the croutons, the capers, and avocado, if desired. Bon appétit!
