Chick Pea Salad

1 540 ml can chick peas drained and rinsed
6 slices turkey summer sausage cut into ¼” cubes (or whatever summer sausage or salami you have)
2 large tomatoes diced
½ large English cucumber diced
3 cloves garlic minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried or 1 tablespoon fresh mint

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss well and serve with fresh, crusty bread. No spread is required on the bread as it makes a great sop (dunker) in the juice. This makes an entire meal on its own and requires no other dishes.

Serves 6
