This salad is very easy and quick to prepare. I love canned chick peas because they come in very handy to dress up any salad or to serve on their own.
Chick peas are also very healthful; they are a great source of dietary fiber and protein. No wonder humans have been eating them for more than 5,000 years!
- 2 (15.5-ounce) cans chick peas, drained
- ½ red onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup chopped cilantro
- 1 teaspoon ground dehydrated lime — lemon omani (optional)
Mix all ingredients together and serve.
Yield: 4 cups
