In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, onions, corn, tomatoes, basil, and chives. Toss well, and season with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan, add the oil, vinegar, honey, garlic, lime juice, and lime zest. Heat over a low heat, whisking until the mixture is warm, and the garlic cloves begin to sizzle.

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
