Chickpea and Corn salad

This is an all time favorite salad in my home. Not only is the salad healthy, it is very simple to make also.

You will need:
1 can chickpeas or ( 1 cup boiled chickpeas)
1/2 can of corn (1 cup corn if using frozen or fresh)
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro chopped
1/2 cup chopped cucumber (optional)
1 tsp minced jalapeno
1/2 cup chopped green onions (scallions)
salt to taste
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

Whisk olive oil and lime/lemon juice together, add salt and mix well. Now add rest of the ingredients and adjust seasonings. You can use chili powder and black pepper for a different kind of heat in the salad. You can serve it at room temperature or serve cold. Tastes equally good.
