Tasty chickpeas are combined with diced red and yellow capsicums, a green chilli, diced red onion and a dressing of lemon and lime juice for a high fibre salad.
Though you don't have to chill before serving, the salad really is best when the flavours have a chance to meld!
Altered ingredient amounts. With only one red capsicum, onion and jalapeno mixed in with a 470g can of chickpeas, I knew I'd need another can of beans. I don't know how anyone could use 4 capsicums and still expect to find a chickpea on their fork!!! This was fresh and easy to make, but I changed the recipe a lot (leaving out 3 capsicums, adding another can of beans). Maybe I shouldn't even have reviewed it?? - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. We just tried this recipe and everyone loved it. I added coriander instead of the parsley and added chopped kalamata olives. The possibilities are endless. I found that I would use 2 cans of the garbanzos if using 2 of each peppers. - 29 Sep 2008
I just love this salad and so does all who eat it. I serve it all the time. - 29 Sep 2008
