Gluten free Couscous and Chickpea Salad

This isn’t really couscous, because of course that can never been gluten free.  However, I have found a gluten free version, which is made from corn.  Although not tasting the same and being yellow instead of white, it is a good substitute if the Coeliac in your house misses couscous.  This quantity will serve four people as a side dish.
