I love garbanzos I love peas; this was a perfect recipe for me! Delicious! Some minor adjustments: I doubled the peas to 1/2 cup and reduced the olive oil to 4 T. In addition to tasting wonderful the salad looked beautiful as well and I think it would make a nice side dish for a summer bbq. Of course with all the garlic and onions I should probably put a bowl of mints right next to it! Thanks! Read More

Quick & easy meal! I didn't have onions nor garlic so I used onion & garlic powders. I added one can of tomatoes with onion & garlic decreased the oil to 4 tbsp (btw...that's 1/4 cup) and increased the peas to about 1 cup. Read More

I skipped the peas. The garbanzos alone were really good but I think I added more onion than I should have. Definately a nice chilled bean salad that will go in the recipe box! Read More

These are a delicious side and even better the next day! It's one of those where you can add more of what you like - i think i added more garlic onion and red pepper flakes. So easy; definitely a winner. Thanks! Read More

Loved this! I added diced orange bell pepper for a little extra texture and flavor. I increased the cayenne pepper a tad and as other reviews did I also increased the peas to 1/2 cup and decreased the olive oil to 3 Tbsp. Ate as a side dish but could definitely eat as a snack as well. Yum! Read More

I cannot keep my spoon out of these! As is they are perfect but I spiced them up to my liking and added a shook of Italian seasoning in addition to the oregano. Along with some roasted brussels sprounts these made a lovely little mini-meal Read More

This was a pretty good salad. I followed the recommendations less oil twice as much peas. I didn't have cayenne pepper seasoning so instead I used a Hot Mexican Chilli or something weird I got out of the spice aisle. Tastes healthy and good I think! Read More
