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.

Just finished a wonder ful lunch of this which was a leftover from a dinner two days ago. I REALLY like the meld of flavors. Did a bit of tweaking though. Only had small Key limes so I added about a tbls of fresh grated zest, washed the beans and chickpeas in cold water to reduce the sodium content and went heavy on the fresh black pepper. This was a delight for the tastbuds. This is certainly going into my "Make Again" cookbook!

I made this to take to a salad supper. I mixed everything (except the tomatoes) the evening before to give the veggies time to marinate in the dressing & added the chopped tomatoes 1hr before serving. This was very colorful & a really good canned bean salad. I did use both red & green peppers and added a few red pepper flakes.
