Chickpea and Tuna Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Manami

Found this in Lidia Italy at Home, and it looks easy so how can it be bad with these ingredients? For a taste of it on a bruschetta grill slices of country bread. Allow for cooling time. Update - I made this again the other night and use crushed red pepper flakes instead of black pepper and I too reduced the amount of oil that I used.Also, served it with avocado slices(drizzled with lime juice)on the side. Delicious!

Great base recipe, has so much potential for many other ideas! I cut the recipe for just me, one can chickpea, one can tuna. Omit the olive oil and add 2 tsp Greek dressing. Thinly sliced white onion ( what was on hand ) a good shake of "Garlic Plus" seasoning, S&P and a dash of hot sauce. It was heavenly, planned on taking some to work tomorrow but instead ate the whole bowl! Thanks for this, the variations are endless.
