For chickpea salad dressing

- 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black peppercorns
- 2 green chilies, finely sliced

Prep your veggies first by rinsing, peeling if needed and combine them in a bowl. I have used sliced strawberries, cubed cucumbers, onions, halved salad tomatoes and green peppers.
Add cooked chickpeas to the veggies.
In a small bowl combine the ingredients for dressing. I have used extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, finely chopped green chilies, freshly cracked peppercorns, brown sugar and salt.
Pour the dressing over the prepped salad and toss well.
Serve chickpea salad as side with your favorite grilled dishes or as main meal with a piece of bread.
- Instead of lemon juice you can add orange juice.
- The recipe can be doubled.
