Easy summer salad

Have you ever bought chickpea salad from the deli counter?  Never again!

It is so easy to toss together!

I will serve it tonight for dinner, along with grilled lemon rosemary chicken thighs and corn-on-the-cob. 

Chickpea Salad
1 can chick peas (19 oz/540 ml), rinsed and drained
1/4 cup cilantro/coriander, chopped, or substitute fresh parsley
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
cayenne pepper, to taste

Combine. Toss. Stand for 1 hr. Serve.
