This is a simple side dish that is nice as part of a summer salad plate.
It’s the work of a minute to put it together, but let it have a few hours after that for the chickpeas to absorb the flavours.
All the oil and vinegar you need is already in the liquid from the jar of marinated mushrooms. Feel free to add whatever extra seasoning strikes your fancy.
To be clear: this is not a canning recipe, this is a cooking with canning recipe.
