    spatchcock's Note:

    This is really more of a "chickpea compote!" I love this and make it with tons of variations. Here's the basic recipe. I serve these with toasted pita triangles brushed with olive oil and dusted with cumin and kosher salt. this is great for informal gatherings or parties when you need to bring a dish. You could easily make lots of this and I often do. Mmmm!! Add the peppers if you want--just depends on whether you like peppers! the ingredients say red and green ones, but I've added orange and yellow as well. This is an add/delete kind of recipe--keep changing it little by little as you make it!

      I was looking up chickpea recipes & just had to make this one based on your picture! It looks so deliciously colorful. I was having my parents over, who don't eat garlic or onions, so I substituted in some fresh ginger to taste & also threw in a cup of fresh corn for added flavor. The lime & ginger flavors complimented eachother well & really brought out the freshness of this summer salad. Thanks so much for the excellent recipe spatchcook.

      This truly is a colorful salad! I included both red and green sweet bell peppers and their colors went fantastic with the black beans and tan chickpeas. The best part of this salad is that a majority of the flavors comes just from the mix of veggies, rather than from an overload of vinegar and oil. Thanks for the recipe; I will certainly be making this again!

      This is really delicious and easy to make. I didn't make it, but my sister did. It was very good. Good with diced green pepper too.
