This fresh and healthy Indian dish is a great for a get-together with friends or a quick dinner. Once the beans are cooked or if you use canned garbanzo beans, this salad will be ready in no time. The fresh ginger and cumin create the Indian flavor.

- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 orange bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 3 spring onions, chopped
- thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- 3/4 tbsp sugar
- 2 to 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp cumin
- salt, pepper, to taste
- 2 to 3 tbsp chopped cilantro
In a bowl, mix together the chickpeas with the red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, the red onion and the spring onion. Add the sugar, ginger and the lemon juice. Mix well.
