Chickpea and Tomato Salad with fresh Basil...made this today, while good found it was a little bland, so pulled out my trusty and often used book The Flavor Bible and found that all of the ingredients used work with chickpeas, but cumin,coriander,red pepper flakes and black olives also work, added 1/4 tsp cumin and 1/4 coriander and a 1/2 cup sliced black olives and Viola !! It came to life..
