I discovered this yummy recipe over the summer. It’s a delicious, healthy dish for sweat-oiled, hot tailgating Saturdays. And since you make it at home beforehand, it’s great for those noon games where you don’t have a lot of time to prepare food at your tailgate.
In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, onions, corn, tomatoes, basil and chives. Toss well with the salt and pepper.
In a small saucepan, add the oil, vinegar, honey, garlic, lime juice and zest. Heat over low heat and whisk until the mixture is warm and garlic cloves are sizzling a bit.
Pour the liquid over the chickpeas and and toss well to coat. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. It tastes better as it sits.
