Five Minute Chickpea Salad Recipe

Provided By
This colorful and nuitritious salad can be ready in a flash if you use left-over rice. If you need to prepare the rice, it will take about 20 minutes longer. Use as a side salad for four or as a main dish for two. Chickpeas, also called garbonzo beans, are a good protein source, but you can increase the protein level by adding cooked meat, diced or crumbled cheese or nuts such as walnuts, almonds or peanuts. Be creative! Exact proportions aren't critical.
