Quick & easy to make, very refreshing and full of flavor. My extended family loved this one (nothing was left)! Went very well with a '04 Latcham Vineyard Cabernet Franc :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a wok or large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the peanut oil and toss in the garlic and red onions.
  2. Stir fry for about a minute, until the garlic gives off a nutty aroma.
  3. Add the red wine vinegar while still on the heat - cook down and stir in the chile flakes along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and leave to cool before adding the olive oil and lime juice.
  5. In a large bowl, tip in all the salad ingredients and spoon over the dressing. Leave the garbanzos to steep for an hour or so before serving at room temperature, either as a starter or as an accompaniment to roast meats.
