Chickpea Salad

Cold salads are great for the hot summer months. Beans for one are also very good for you. Chickpeas are something I love to add in my soups, salads, with pasta and just love to pick on them. Give this one a try. Add different spices to it to make it your own.  This is my version.

1 can of chickpeas, drain and rinse
1 small can of black pitted olives
1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes
1 small red onion, sliced
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cloves of garlic, minced

This is very simple to make. Empty all ingredients in a bowl that you would like to serve in or container. Blend well and refrigerate until cold and serve. So simple, so easy and so very yummy. To use this recipe as a spread on crackers or bread. Omit the tomatoes and give a few pulses in the food processor and there you go, a chickpea spread. Again, simply delicious.
