Moroccan Chickpea Salad Recipe 

Spicy Moroccan Chickpea SaladA spicy, healthy, quick and easy chickpea salad recipe. You don't need to cook anything to make a delicious and nutritious feast. We blackened and cooked the peppers ourselves but you can buy them ready roasted in any good food shop or store.
Chickpeas - Garbanzos are a great source of fiber and protein. They're quite bland in character  and so lend themselves very nicely to taking on other stronger flavours, such as spices and citrus juices.
This salad makes a refreshing lunch on a summer's day and is quite hearty enough to eat as a winter salad.
A great Mediterranean Diet treat.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.
