Chickpea Salad with Mint, Basil & Greek Feta

chickpeasalad

I had some leftover herbs and usually have a can of chickpeas hangin out somewhere in my pantry, so why not a salad? I rinsed and drained the chickpeas, then dressed it with red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, chiffonaded mint, torn basil, thinly sliced red onion (could have been thinner), and chunks of Greek feta. I forgot to add the Spanish canned tuna before I took the picture, but all together it made a really delicious lunch with akmak crackers. I think next time pita, red leaf lettuce, tomato and cucumber will be delicious too. And involve less chickpeas rolling off akmaks.
