It's all the same thing and it's big foodie news. Right up there with ...icky kale.
But I have a recipe from about 1990.
You know. Last century.
When we lived in Marinette, when the children were young, my next door neighbor for the first few years was a young mom named Ann. Ann went to kindergarten with Patrick. She and Tom had children about the same age as ours. In fact Erin and Emma are only two weeks apart.
For a while there, Ann and I would get together for lunch. We would make recipes we found in magazines and in the newspaper.
Ann made this Greek Chick Pea salad and wrote out the card for me. I loved it right away.
Greek Chick Pea Salad
2 cans chick peas- rinse and drain
2 med. tomatoes, cored, chopped
1/2 cup red pepper
(green pepper too...but I hate it)
4 scallions - trimmed and chopped
1/4 cup Greek olives- halved
1/4 C. chopped parsley
1 T. chopped fresh oregano
1/2 c. olive oil
3 T. balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Good and good for you.
Encourage one another,
p.s. I told Emma that chick peas make 'one' gassy.
She said, they make everyone gassy.
