Chickpea Salad (p1)
I got this recipe from the blog : Once Upon A Feast -Every Kitchen Tells Its Stories
Its a really great recipe but there are a few things that I change or add when making it. Below is the recipe as I make it. For the original recipe or other good ones visit the blog link above .
2 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 red or orange bell pepper, chopped
1 to 1/2 tsp chopped garlic (from jar)
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp cumin
Cayenne pepper and Salt, to taste
Combine all the ingredients together, mix well and let set for approximately 10 mins and then taste for seasoning (this allows the flavors to start to set in). Chill for 30 mins to an hour and serve.
Note: this keeps really well in the fridge and is so easy, colorful and flavorful!
