- The Basic
- 2 Cans of Chick Peas
- 1 Cucumber halved length-wise and cut into 1/4 inch slices
- 1 medium red onion diced
- 1 red, yellow, or green pepper (I like Red for color)
- Pepper and Coarse Salt
- Red Pepper Flakes
- 2-4 Tbsp.
- Oil 1-3 Tbsp.
- Red Wine Vinegar
- Italian Version
- Add 1 1/2 cup cooked tri-color pasta
- And spice it with Oregano and Rosemary to taste
There are literally a million variations of this salad - I've used Spiced Vinegar or Balsamic to nice effect. I've added Parmesan cheese and home-made bacon bits. In a pinch I've even used Annie's Organic Dressings instead of oil and vinegar and eliminated the spices.
Happy Independence Day!
