At work today, my team had a discussion about how much we all love chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), so I thought I would share a great recipe I found that would be a terrific addition to the Fourth of July meal.

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • About 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 25 large basil leaves, chopped (or whatever you have on hand)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • pinch of salt

Toss all ingredients together and chill for at least 20 minutes.  Enjoy!
