This is a good salad as it can be made the day before. If you don't want to cook use 2 400gr tins chickpeas. I can't remember where I got this recipe.

Delicious! I added some avocado, which went wonderfully with it.

I used 2 400g cans of chickpeas, and everything else as listed. We loved it! The mint gave the salad a lovely touch of sweetness, and we really enjoyed the variety of tastes and textures. I'm not normally keen on a strong raw garlic flavour and the garlic did leave quite an aftertaste, and the smell of the left-overs permeated the fridge. For this reason I initially thought I'd cut the garlic to one clove next time, but the dressing is so tasty I don't know if I want to mess with it. :) Thank you for a delicious recipe!
