Chickpea salad wrap/taco

This is a truly tasty, healthy, and guilt free dish.
Very easy to make.  Make a big batch and have it as a snack, wraps or as a side dish to your meal.
I used a low carb whole wheat tortilla's from Trader Joe's.  I lightly sauteed the tortilla with olive oil
and added the chickpea salad.


Main star of this dish is the chickpeas.  After that you can add any kind of
veggies you desire.

Here is the list for mine.  I use these veggies because they don't get too soggy
after couple of days in the fridge.

1 can of chick peas (Garbanzo beans)  rinsed.
1 orange bell pepper
1/2 cup of diced tomatoes (Cherry tomatoes are ideal)
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
1/4 of small red onion chopped
1 chopped garlic clove

1 lemon squeezed
Splash of red wine vinegar
1/2 inch of ginger grated.
1/2 tsp of sugar or honey
Olive oil  (For traditional dressing its 3 parts oil and 1 part vinegar.  I use less oil and add a splash of water)
Salt and pepper to taste.

*Of course use any kind of dressing you like.
Feta cheese is a great topping for this salad.
