Mediterranean Zucchini and Chickpea Salad

Rated as 4.84 out of 5 Stars

"Chopped zucchini, chickpeas, tomatoes, and fresh basil in a light balsamic dressing. Or you can use red wine vinegar! Makes a great side dish or light lunch. Not necessary, but best if chilled at least a couple hours to let flavors blend."
