Chickpea Salad

This chickpea salad is loosely based on Mediterranean style of salad. It is light, healthy and full of flavor. This is my favorite addition to grilled meat in the summer and lunch sandwiches in cooler months. It tastes great eaten alone or with a piece of buttered bread. The seasoning is very well balanced with just enough to coat the main ingredients and not overwhelm their natural flavor. It is lovely and delicate – definitely worth having in one’s cooking repertoire.
