A very tasty salad that ccan be the basis for some interesting variations. I used chickpeas that I cooked myself, and I pulled them out of the crockpot and doused them with the dressing. I think I would add some chopped parsley or thyme, to punch up the flavor a bit. I did not use the cream cheese, it just did not sound appealing, but I might try some manchego or mozzarella. I also think that adding some fresh veggies would be a nice variation - fresh diced tomato or zucchini.
