There are so many wonderful flavors and textures in this salad. Chickpeas, snap peas, red pepper, coconut flakes, and cashews tossed in a sweet chili sauce compliments all the ingredients so well. I love making this for summer parties and gatherings with friends.
Note: You can find sweet chili sauce in the international food isles at most supermarkets, or try an Asian grocery store.

1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup oil, canola, vegetable, or olive
Wash all produce.
Dice the red pepper, and snow peas in a medium dice.
Drain and rinse garbanzo beans.
