Greek Chickpea Salad

This salad gets even better the longer it marinates in the refrigerator. While it's completely yummy right away, it tastes best after about 24 hours. I made up this salad after having early spring cravings for crunchy, crisp, refreshing summer food. The tangy vinaigrette and the sharp feta cheese balance perfectly with the hearty chickpeas and crunchy, sweet veggies and make for a really vibrant and satisfying salad.
