What a delightful salad! I love chickpeas but am not a big fan of cumin; however, the spices were balances perfectly in this. I used a regular cucumber, tomatoes, and light green peppers that were all straight from the farm. The mint, walnuts, and feta really boosted this up, I think. I doubled the recipe and my DBF will be taking this to work for lunch all weeklong! Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
Delicious! I loved the combination of spices. I used a regular cucumber which was peeled and seeded prior to chopping. The salad was made a few hours before serving and refrigerated. The flavors blended beautifully. Made for ZWT9.
Really yummy. I swapped zucchini for the cucumber because I like it a lot more, lol. The only other change was that I used a yellow pepper because I didn't have a green one. It's easy, very tasty and healthy. That combination equals a winning recipe in my book.
This sure is pretty to look at!!! I let the mixture marinate at room temperature for about 2 hours prior to serving and it still was a bit bland for my taste. I added some extra salt, some red wine vinegar and some Greek Seasoning to kick it up a bit. Used this in a wrap with some lettuce. Nice lunch!
My son, who LOVES cumin wanted me to try this dish. Im not a fan of cumin as a prevailing flavor, but I didn't feel the cumin dominated this salad at all. It was just right. This is a great salad, fast to prepare and tastes great! I also crumbled the toasted pitas right into the salad. made for ZWT6
Super chickpea salad! The lemon and cumin compliment each other just right. I used fresh basil instead of mint and didn't add the feta. The toasty pitas made it fun for my DS to eat.
Oh, this is an awesome salad! It strikes the perfect balance of flavors. I halved the cayenne and cumin for DH and used just a pinch of salt. I have made similar salads to this before, but they were never this good. I think the walnuts and small amount of feta add a nice touch. I can see why this made it into the best of ZWT and the best of 2008 game!
Delicious! All of the flavors worked really well together. I made some minor changes: I reduced the cumin to 1.5 tsp, and will probably reduce it to 1 tsp next time. I subbed red pepper for the green. And I didn't have walnuts so didn't use any. I have saved this one in my book #237871.
DH enjoyed this salad for his lunch. I left out the feta cheese since he doesn't like it. The rest of the recipe was made as written. Made for Zaar Stars
I loved this salad, the crunch from the nuts and the creaminess from the cheese go so well together with the cumin dressing. I don't really like mint but added it anyway & found that mixed with the other spices it's hardly detectable. Great recipe, thanks Boomie!
