Chickpeas are versatile; they can go in absolutely anything! Sometimes known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are extremely popular in the Mediterranean diet. They fit perfectly in a salad such as this. I haven’t always liked chickpeas, I tried them once at someone’s house and didn’t enjoy the taste. But when I tried to cook them myself, I learned to love them. My mom never cooked with them, so they were never part of our home meals. Chickpeas are a good source of fiber, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. That makes this salad filling and great to serve as a main meal.
