Black rice and chickpea salad

April 6, 2014


Author Notes: This is a glorified bean salad. I generally like bean salads but I find them too acidic (so this is a bean salad without acid). Feel free to sub any ingredient (well, except the onions, celery, garlic, and chickpeas). This salad tastes best topped with feta and fresh parsley.Sweets
