chickpea , mint, tomato salad (favorite!)
This is one of my very favorites! Great by itself or served on lettuce.
1 can chickpeas
1 cup of cherry type tomatoes cut in two
basil leaves fresh or dried (I often do a good sprinkling of the dry)
mint leaves (about 2 good sized ones cut very fine)
1 tsp of minced garlic
1 Tab of apple cider vinegar
1 tab of red wine vinegar
1 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
mix and let sit in the frig for a while to absorb all the flavors.
Eat by itself or with crackers, or on salad or with a meal with corn on the cob, sweet potatoes and salad.
NOTE: This is also good mixed made and then mixed into the veggie rice salad here: http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2012/07/summer-rice-salad-from-better-homes-and.html
I found the idea here and altered it to suit my taste: http://greenlitebites.com/2011/06/20/chickpea-and-tomato-salad-with-fresh-basil/
