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.
