Broccoli Salad with Yogurt Dressing

I know it isn't quite broccoli season...but I had a request for this recipe so here it is!

1 head broccoli, washed, and cut into small florets
1 cup chick peas
1/4 cup dried currants
1 red pepper, diced small

1 cup yogurt
1 cup feta cheese
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 large cloves fresh garlic, pressed

In a food processor or blender combine yogurt, lemon juice, half of the feta cheese,and pressed garlic. Blend until smooth. In a small bowl combine blended yogurt with the rest of the feta cheese and season to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper.

In a large bowl combine broccoli florets, chick peas, and diced red pepper. Pour yogurt dressing over vegetables and stir until combined. This salad can be eaten right away or can be made ahead.
