So this is the other chickpea recipe that I made yesterday. Very refreshing and the flavor was great. The combination of onion, garlic, herbs and cumin made it full of flavor. I had it with some bread for my dinner last night, yum. The salad can be made one day ahead, then let it marinate overnight in the frige. It will be even better next day.
