Really good quick recipe! I didn't have onions in the house but substituted some chopped green onions and that worked well. Also I used cherry tomatoes cut in half rather than a regular tomato. Lastly I squeezed lemon juice over the entire salad at the end rather than just place lemon slices on it. Amazing and I will make again. As a note I loved the cider vinegar as an ingredient in this recipe! Read More

Little too much onion for me even though I am an avid onion lover. I didn't have vinegar or oil on me which might have overall altered the potential flavor of the salad. With my alterations this salad was just okay. Read More

This was a wonderful dish that I've already made a couple times last week. The only change I made was the second time I made it. I found yellow onions too overpowering so the second time I used green onions. It had a much nicer flavor and added a nice bit of color. I also added diced red bell pepper and it was delicious!

I really liked this recipe though I agree with some of the other reviews that the onion was a little overpowering so next time I will use green onion instead. I also added celery which was nice. Read More

Quick easy yummy recipe. I needed a one-bowl dinner for myself one humid summer evening and this fit the bill perfectly. I added chopped red pepper and snowpeas for extra crunch plus crumbled in a bit of goat cheese. I think I'll try shallots instead of onion next time for a more subtle oniony flavour. Thanks for this!

Fast easy cheap and delicious! I admit I had my doubts. With so few ingredients but it was GREAT!! I couldn't find my cider vinegar so I used tarragon vinegar. I'm sure even white would work. I also didn't have any lemon to garnish it so i used parsley which also gave it another degree of color. This is going to be a staple recipe for me!! Read More

this is my first time making a chickpea salad and now i'll definitely be making more. it was so simple and it came out delicious. I made some adjustments to mine: i used cilantro instead of onions (didn't have any) and added a pinch more cider vinegar (i like it a little more sour) i can't wait to share this with my bf!

quick and easy recipe. following the advice of others i cut down the amount of onions by about half and i think it was definitely an improvement. i also added a little but of fresh cilantro for color and a little bit of feta on top instead of salt. will definitely make this again! Read More

this is a great base salad.its almost something like my mother in law (from yemen) makes.the onion is kind of overpowering and its sort of missing something. next time im going to try adding some avacados and maybe some red bellpepper and instead of chopped onion im going to grate a small amount of onion and used lemon juice instead of lemon slices and a little more salt Read More
