    What a great salad, it’s fresh and tasty but it is also what I call light comfort food. As a combination, the chick peas and the fibre of the quinoa have that satisfying feeling. The recipe calls for combining the quinoa the chickpeas, tomatoes and black olives. Then add a wonderfully aromatic dressing and serve sprinkled with mint. Excellent in taste; quick and easy to prepare.
