Low calorie meal that delivers great flavor! I didn t have the called-for seasoning nor lemon juice so I substituted standard pepper and rice vinegar in the same proportions to taste. Served it over a bed of baby leaf spinach. Delicious! Read More

Not too bad the lemon juice can be more pronounced though. Read More

I followed the recipe with the exception of feta cheese instead of mozzarella. It tasted a bit bland to me so I added dried mint marjoram and basil. Then I thought that I would use some of the Mediterranean fruit that I had on hand so threw in some chopped dates and figs and a potato that I had left from the Russian salad that I made Fri. So after all of those additions it was fantastic! That's why I gave it 4 stars. It is a wonderful basic start to a great healthy filling salad. Read More

Great! I substituted mozzarella with feta and omitted the olive oil seasoning & lemon juice - I just added some zesty italian dressing and it was yummy! Read More

Great flavor in this salad. I didn't have mozzarella so used shredded Mexican blend cheese instead. It did help to let it marinate a little in the fridge to help blend the flavors. I served it over fresh baby spinach. Overall quick and a really nice side. Read More

This was delicious! I don't keep fresh parsley in my fridge but I always have cilantro so I subbed that. I also had sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella and used hierloom baby tomatoes. So good! Even Grumpy who proclaims to hate chickpeas liked this salad and took it in his lunchbox!:) Read More

Nice side dish to serve with the Mujadarrah I made. I subbed cilantro for the parsley and rice vinegar for the lemon as I didn't have either! Will for sure make again! Read More
