I have made this recipe several times and it always gets compliments. I prefer cooking up the hard chickpeas (over the canned) as I think the texture is better and there is also less sodium. A little more time consuming but they cook up in less than an hour. I also prefer cherry tomatos cut in half. Great flavors in this one..... Read More

I love this recipe. A few things I did differently: I used cilantro instead of parsley and added a splash of balsamic vinegar. It was delicious. Read More

Just delicious, with the perfect ratio of olive oil to lemon juice. And the lemon juice was refreshingly different from the vinegar traditionally used in dressings like this. No need to measure ingredients, just add to suit your tastes. This was a nice change from typical lettuce salads. And it was pretty too! Read More

This was super fast and very easy to assemble. My husband loved it. I thought it was a little bland but I am not a big chickpea fan. It would be a great addition to a buffet table. Read More

This recipe is a real winner... I tripled it and served it at our son's graduation open house. It went quickly and people made a point of telling me how great it tasted. I used 3 suggestions from reviewers: 1) Added about 3T. balsamic vinegar in addition to the lemon juice 2) Added about 2 big handfuls of julienned baby spinach leaves along with the parsley (used Italian flat-leaf) 3) Added about 1 pt. of halved grape tomatoes in place of regular tomato ... also, don't skip the salt and freshly ground black pepper. Thanks so much for a great recipe I'll use often! Read More

This was very good and easy to mix together. I didn't have fresh parsley and instead used 4 tsp. dried. (I'm sure fresh would be better.) I added an extra clove of garlic (not a large clove) just for more flavor. It will be made again! You can't beat it for taste and fiber! Read More

So delicious!! I used a little more onion grape tomatoes halved and fresh parsley and it turned out wonderful! Next time I will try using a splash of balsamic vinegar like another reviewer suggested for a little extra kick! Read More

Make sure you use fresh parsley in this recipe -- It does make a difference. This was quick and easy to prepare. I love the fact that it is something different in the old cold salad lineup. Will make again. Read More
