"Easy, healthy, and quick to prepare. The combination of flavors is just really nice in this dish. It is perfect for a potluck or BBQ; but, because it is so easy to prepare, it is great for any night of the week. Now, if you have the time, you can prepare your own chick peas; or, you buy a good quality canned chick pea which works equally as well."

Step 1

Dressing ... Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 2

Salad ... Add everything to a serving bowl and toss to combine. Then, add the dressing - not quite all of it. I tend to dress my salads a bit lighter, so add most of the dressing and mix to combine. You can always add more, but you can't take any away. Let the salad rest at least 30 minutes before serving. At that time, you can add the rest of the dressing if you want.

Step 3

Serve and ENJOY!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this refreshing salad! I did add some cucumber and a sprinkling of sesame seeds for garnish. Lovely on a warm summer evening. Thank you for sharing Kchurchill5! Made for Summer Vacation Tag.
