This looks yummy! Chickpeas are tasty AND nutritious...

This is a nice change to our normal side dishes. As someone else mentioned, you can add just about any vegetable and this will be good

Yummy. I usually am not fond of cilantro, but it seems milder when mixed in the dressing. You could throw celery, green pepper, and just about anything in this salad and it would be a hit! Making it for the 3rd time this summer!

I love this festive looking summer salad! It has a great variety of flavors, textures, and color! Since it has the chickpeas and beans in it with the vegetables it is full of protein and would make a great vegan main dish. If you don't care for the strong flavor of cilantro, fresh parsley works nicely in there too!
