Chickpea Salad

 Such a wonderful, refreshing salad!!!  I highly recommend trying to find the blood orange olive oil.  The slight flavor of it in this salad is so pleasing and tasty!  Yes, it is still delicious with regular extra virgin olive oil and balsamic so don’t steer away from making this.

 Ingredients List:

1 cup cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup purple onion, chopped

1/2 cup plum or cherry tomatoes, sliced or chopped

4 jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined, and fine chopped

1 lg TBS chopped fresh basil

4 tsp white balsamic ( I used Cranberry Pear. This is from a specialty store, If you can’t get it, just use regular balsamic)

2 tsp Olive oil (I used blood orange, also from a specialty store, if you can’t get it, use regular extra virgin)

1/2 tsp kosher salt, or more depending on taste

1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients well in a medium mixing bowl.  Refrigerate if necessary.

 Serve and enjoy!!!
