Sophie's Super Easy Chickie-Pea and Mato Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tinkerbell

A refreshing, flavorful salad with just a hint of smokiness. My 3 year old and I were looking to make a quick and healthy lunch with what we had on hand. This was the tasty result. We've been experimenting with garbanzo beans (chickpeas) over the last year and she giggles whenever we eat them because her pronunciation is "chickie-peas". Since she helped create this dish and then had two helpings, I named it after her. :)

This made a great accompaniment to gyros. This recipe makes a great alternative to hummus! I love g-beans and like this clean recipe. I added a little chili oil for zing.
