Chickpea Salad with Couscous


1 person made this

This is the easiest quick meal I know! If you can chop an onion this is the recipe for you. You can change the spices around to your own taste, I make this with garlic and mixed Italian herbs sometimes and it works out just great. This travels well cold so it's a good choice to bring to a BBQ.
