I like to buy dried chickpeas, cook and freeze them for a healthy option quick at hand. This way you can use 1/2 cup to multiple cups. Seeing as I did have a bag in the freezer, I decided to make a chickpea salad for lunch one day. I enjoyed it very much and seeing as we are having a get together this weekend I thought it would make a great potluck side!
With all these wonderful ingredients, it is a great, healthy dish. You could easily change up the pepper from red to yellow or orange. You could use cherry, grape or mixture of tomatoes like I've done here. If you don't have green onions on hand, you could substitute about a 1/4 of red onion minced or even shallots would be good. I used mini cucumbers but of course a whole English one would work as well.
I made the recipe on the blog for a larger serving but of course you can just half the ingredients for a dinner side dish. Although, left overs are not a bad thing here.
