This was quite tasty. The dressing is tangy and spicy, but it's tempered by the coolness of the cucumber and the mild chickpeas. Modifications: I used half of an onion, which seemed to be a perfect amount. I also used bulk chickpeas - I 14 oz. can is equal to abotu 1.5 cups of prepared chickpeas (slightly more then 3/4 cups dry). If you're going to use dry chick peas, soak them overnight, boil them for about an hour, drain and let cool before using. Other than that, I made the recipe exactly as listed. Tangy, spicy, delicious!
