- In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix in the chickpeas, red peppers, yellow peppers, chilli, red onion and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Refrigerate salad 2 to 4 hours before serving.
Though you don't have to chill before serving, the salad really is best when the flavours have a chance to meld!

Very tasty; crunchy with a nice tang to it. I didn't have a chilli to hand so I used a tsp of mild chilli powder and it probably could have taken more, or a hotter powder.-24 Apr 2015
With only one red pepper, onion and jalapeno mixed in with a 15oz can of garbanzo beans, I knew I'd need another can of beans. I don't know how anyone could use 4 bell peppers and still expect to find a chickpea on their fork!!! This was fresh and easy to make, but I changed the recipe a lot (leaving out 3 peppers, adding another can of beans). Maybe I shouldn't even have reviewed it??-19 Jul 2006

We just tried this recipe and everyone loved it. I added cilantro instead of the parsley and added chopped kalamata olives. The possibilities are endless. I found that I would use 2 cans of the garbanzos if using 2 of each peppers.-18 Aug 2007
