We like to serve this one as a nice dinner salad served on a bed of mixed greens! Cook time is actually chilling time, no cooking required, also makes a quick bean salad to bring to bbq's! Adapted from a WebMD article "The Part-Time Vegetarian"

I was actually surprised at how much my husband ate of this. He's not big on vinegar. I did think it was lacking flavor so I added sugar, salt, and garlic powder. (didn't use fresh garlic)

Had some chickpeas I cooked myself and this looked like a good recipe to try. I made it twice, added a lot more balsamic vinegar because it didn't have enough flavor for me. Also left out the cheese the second time, it was just as good.

This was a most enjoyable salad. With the cheese this could easily be a full meal on it's own but it was great with grilled chicken. A wonderful balance of flavors.
