Chick Pea Salad


Garbanzo Bean, Chick Pea - I don't mind what you call it, I just call this awesome.
Simple, good ingredients, some time hanging out in the fridge, and you have a really good (and good for you) side dish.

I knew the husband would like this a lot, so I did stealth leftovers. ie, I put some aside for myself before I even served it... I'm not ashamed. 

Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
