About this recipe: This colourful chickpea salad is tasty and super healthy - lots of fibre from the chickpeas, and loads of veg to get you to your five a day. Perfect for picnics.
Though you don't have to chill before serving, the salad really is best when the flavours have a chance to meld!
Very tasty; crunchy with a nice tang to it. I didn't have a chilli to hand so I used a tsp of mild chilli powder and it probably could have taken more, or a hotter powder. - 24 Apr 2015
With only one red pepper, onion and jalapeno mixed in with a 15oz can of garbanzo beans, I knew I'd need another can of beans. I don't know how anyone could use 4 bell peppers and still expect to find a chickpea on their fork!!! This was fresh and easy to make, but I changed the recipe a lot (leaving out 3 peppers, adding another can of beans). Maybe I shouldn't even have reviewed it?? - 19 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We just tried this recipe and everyone loved it. I added cilantro instead of the parsley and added chopped kalamata olives. The possibilities are endless. I found that I would use 2 cans of the garbanzos if using 2 of each peppers. - 18 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
