Squeeze of lemon

¼ cup red wine vinegar

⅓ cup evoo 

Salt and pepper to taste

1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup thinly sliced cucumber

½ of a red onion, thinly sliced

1 cup sliced pepperoncinis (you can buy them sliced)

1 cup chopped olives

 

Toppings: Parsley and feta (both optional)
