Recipe Note:

The longer the salad "sits" before serving - the more flavourful it becomes. I prefer to make it a day ahead to allow the flavours to blend.

Did you know

- that there are two types of Canadian chick peas. Desi chick peas are small and dark with a rough coat. Kabuli chick peas are larger and lighter coloured with a smoother coat.

- that the chick pea is also known as a garbanzo bean, Bengal grams & Egyptian peas.

- that Garbanzo beans/chickpeas have a delicious nut-like taste and buttery texture.

- that they provide a concentrated source of protein.

- that canned beans and peas are just as healthy freshly cooked ones. Canned beans and peas do not lose their nutritional value like other canned vegetables do.
