Try this easy & light chickpea salad you'll love (RECIPE)

In my grandmother's kitchen there was always a bean or legume soup soup--black bean soup, lentil soup, chickpea soup, or black eyed pea soup. It's how I grew up, and I can't stop eating them. So, to enjoy my favorite legumes during the summer, I make wonderful salads that I can prepare in advance, because the more you marinate them in the vinaigrette, the better. I promise you won't stop thinking about this chickpea salad's dressing. Make sure to share it with friends and family at your next gathering!

I used red onion not only because of the color, but also because it's sweeter and is complemented nicely with the cilantro. The dressing is made of olive oil, white wine vinegar, and honey. Enjoy!
