1/2 teaspoon sugar

11/2 teaspoons salt

Juice from 2 limes

1/3 cup olive oil

6 cups cooked chickpeas*

1 cup diced watermelon

1/2 cup diced cucumber

1/2 cup sliced radish

1 jalapeño, minced

1/4 cup chopped basil

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (or use halved red grapes)

1 tablespoon toasted cumin seeds

1 teaspoon black pepper

Zest from 2 limes

*The flavor is better if you soak and then cook dried chickpeas, but canned ones will work in a pinch.



For dressing, dissolve sugar and salt in lime juice. Once dissolved, stir in oil. Season to taste.

Gently mix all other ingredients together in a bowl. Fold in dressing and set aside for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

Transfer to serving vessel and enjoy.
