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
