Ingredients

1 can chick peas (19 oz/540 ml), rinsed and drained

¼ cup cilantro/coriander, chopped, or substitute fresh parsley,

¼ cup onion, finely chopped

1/2 red pepper, chopped

1 large clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

cayenne pepper, to taste

Directions

1. Combine all the ingredients together and toss well.

2. Taste for seasoning.

3. Let the salad stand for about 1 hour and serve. Tips & Variations This is a great dish to accompany grilled meat, chicken or fish on the BBQ. I love it as a picnic dish with other salads and some interesting breads to sop up the dressing. (Rosemary focaccia, French Baguette, etc.). To serve as a main dish for light supper or lunch, just spoon the chick peas over endive leaves, baby mixed greens or baby spinach.
