Mexican Chickpea Salad

April 9, 2013

I found this recipe for Easy Mexican Chickpea Salad on Vegangela through Pinterest and just in time!  It is definitely salad weather in the Northeast this week.  I made a double batch (two cans of chickpeas) and it is a good thing since I couldn’t keep my spoon out of the dish while I was preparing dinner.
