This chickpea salad is my go-to dish for any gathering in the spring or summer. It is so easy to throw together and people love it. The fresh herbs and lemon make it the perfect side dish for barbeques and lazy dinners outside. I usually double or triple the recipe.  If I have any leftovers, I bring them to the office for a tasty lunch.
