I love this salad, the ingredients and the flavors are great. It is a fresh yet flavorful salad that can be used as a side dish or main dish lunch as I usually make it. I found this recipe in The Arab Table by: May Bsisu a few years back and have been making it ever since.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas(if using canned) and place in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add the onions and jalapeno.
  3. Whisk together the garlic, salt, cumin, lemon juice, and olive oil.
  4. Pour the dressing over the chickpeas and onions and stir gently to coat the salad.
  5. Spoon out into a serving dish and garnish with tomato, parsley, cayenne and feta cheese.
  6. Enjoy!

Wonderful salad! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and used all the garnishes, including the feta. We loved the spiciness of the jalapenos and and cayenne. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

Almost 4 1/2 stars. I used shallot for the onion and omitted the jalapeño as we don't like really spicy. I used less cayenne out of preference and organic grape tomatoes. We found this quite garlic/oniony. Made for NA*ME Tag.

Love, love, love it!. Lots of flavor, easy and can be made ahead to allow a marinade time. This is a great side but in the warmer months will be a welcome lighter meal in it's self. I didn't and wouldn't change a thing (with the exception of remembering to add the cayenne and feta *blush*).
