Greek Orzo & Chickpea Salad

 

Greek Orzo & Chickpea Salad
 
I know this salad is basically the same as my Greek Chicken Orzo Salad (minus the chicken, plus chickpeas) but this is the version I make more often now. I recently brought this to a party and it was eaten up, with lots of people asking me for the recipe, so here it is!
