MMMmonday - Chickpea Salad

I tried this recipe after seeing it in the Post and Courier, our local Charleston newspaper a few weeks ago and knew that I and to share it with you too!  This makes a wonderful warm salad appetizer or can be used as a side dish too!  I've included the recipe as it was originally printed and my substitutions (in red)

1 1/2 pounds all-purpose potatoes (I used red skin new potatoes)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped (3 tablespoons)
1 1/2 cups no-salt-added chickpeas
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (I had cider vinegar on hand so substituted that)
Finely grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 1 large or 2 medium lemons (I didn't have lemons so I used two limes... yum!)
1/4 cup chopped, loosely packed parsley leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Place the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until a metal skewer or the tip of a sharp knife can slide easily through the potatoes. Be careful not to overcook them.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil and garlic in a small saute pan or skillet over medium-low heat. The oil should be just hot enough to cook the garlic without browning it. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, until it's soft, then remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.
  3. When the potatoes are done, drain and cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Peel each potato (I left the peel on), then cut into 3/4-inch chunks, placing them in a mixing bowl as you work.
  4. Add the chickpeas, vinegar, lemon zest and juice, parsley, the cooled garlic-oil mixture and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Gently toss to mix and evenly distribute the ingredients. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
