this is one of those rare recipes- each ingredient on its own is nothing extraordinary, but combined the flavors balance each other perfectly. I added a little cayenne to the dressing, and I like to serve it over arugula or mixed greens.
Great salad. I really liked mashing some of the chickpeas. I ended up mixing the dressing ingredients into the crushed chickpeas and used the whole mixture as a dressing. I added 1 clove crushed garlic to the dressing and had to sub cumin for coriander. Also added some cayenne because I like it spicy. In the future I think some chopped cilantro would be a nice addition, but it was refreshing and delicious when I made it. Served it with grilled eggplant with feta and tandori grilled chicken from this site.
This salad is amazing--the flavors complement each other beautifully. Every time I bring it to a potluck I get about 3 requests for the recipe. One of my colleagues told me a couple days ago that it's one of her family's favorites!
The flavors in this recipe go together. I really like it.
Easy recipe. The lemon was refreshing and the chickpeas have a great satisfying, creamy taste. I didn't have any fresh parsley (it would have added a lot) but I put in some dried tarragon. It really needed that fresh, green flavor. Good unique, dish to bring to a gathering.
This recipe is wonderful. I've made it several times and it is so easy and quick to put together.The lemon/coriander dressing is perfect.
