Chickpea and onion salad

The chickpea and onion salad involves the use of Tropea red onion, however, those who prefer can use another type of onion, as long as it is sweet. Avoid using onions that are too strong because they would spoil the more delicate flavor of chickpeas. The ingredients for 4 people are:

  • 200 gr of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 onion Tropea (red onion or white onion as long as sweet)
  • 300 gr. of chickpeas already cooked
  • Basil
