In this salad, the versatile chickpea goes exotic in a deeply spiced, aromatic lemon and cumin dressing. Fresh herbs punch it up with an unmistakable freshness, and spinach provides a tender bed. An orange-infused yogurt topping creates a cool, creamy contrast. Great as a side salad with grilled meat, it can also work as a vegetarian entrée.

Quick and easy to put together on a hot day. I especially liked the yogurt-orange sauce. Of the three of us, one gobbled it up enthusiastically, one could hardly eat it, and one (me) found it OK (but I continued tasting raw onions for hours).
The yogurt needs more oomph! I would increase the orange zest to 1 tsp.also the spinach can be mixed with the chickpeas for a more 'serve yourself' version.
Dressing is good. I'd throw in some tomatoes next time.
