If you guys like chickpea/garbanzo beans and avocado,you should try this salad recipe either you serve as salad or you can roll in flour tortilla as sandwich.
as my experiment I fry garlic and shallot in olive oil instead use a fresh one,and I really like the way turn out,,, by the way this is the second time I make this salad and I will make it again soon :)

- 3 sweet peppers/ rough chop
- 1 cup cherry tomato/ cut in half

mean while in the sauce pan,heat olive oil on medium high temperature,fry garlic and shallot until cook/brown about 2 minutes,turn off the stove,remove from heat,and pour directly in to salad mix

add lime zest and lime juice,salt, honey and oil from sun dried tomato,,,

I was actually thinking of trying something similar with chickpeas and yes, I do love chickpeas. This sounds like a great and healthy recipe! I would love to see the pictures. I tried to open the pictures but couldn't view them. Am I the only one who has this problem?
