Chickpea Salad

I love pickled veggies, they are a great way to brighten a dish or help cut through fat. In this chickpea salad, the pickled onions brighten without overpowering the other ingredients. This can be a side dish, perfect with grilled chicken and corn, or serve it as a vegetarian main dish for lunch or a light supper. The cucumbers and tomatoes add a nice, fresh summer feeling to the meal as well. This chickpea salad also is perfect as a packed lunch to bring to work or school.
