Colorful Chickpea and Black Bean Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This is really more of a "chickpea compote!" I love this and make it with tons of variations. Here's the basic recipe. I serve these with toasted pita triangles brushed with olive oil and dusted with cumin and kosher salt. this is great for informal gatherings or parties when you need to bring a dish. You could easily make lots of this and I often do. Mmmm!! Add the peppers if you want--just depends on whether you like peppers! the ingredients say red and green ones, but I've added orange and yellow as well. This is an add/delete kind of recipe--keep changing it little by little as you make it!

I was looking up chickpea recipes & just had to make this one based on your picture! It looks so deliciously colorful. I was having my parents over, who don't eat garlic or onions, so I substituted in some fresh ginger to taste & also threw in a cup of fresh corn for added flavor. The lime & ginger flavors complimented eachother well & really brought out the freshness of this summer salad. Thanks so much for the excellent recipe spatchcook.
