Yum, the longer this sat, the betterit got! I quarered the recipe just for me, enjoyed it too! Thanks! Made for the Asian tag game.
Chickpeas are not among my favorite ingredients, but I really liked this! It was colorful and well seasoned. I did drain & rinse the chickpeas before making the salad. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
this was a tasty salad. for our personal preference, however, it was a bit too sweet. i would make this again, however, i would decrease the amount of sugar and use ginger juice instead of grated ginger, maybe even up the amount of ginger. after initial tasting we took winkki's suggestion and added some curry powder. definitely a good addition!
Thank you so much Kozmic Blue for posting this recipe! I just packed up Bittman cookbook and really wanted to make this salad today. It is super, fresh, healthy, and oh so yummy!
Love this salad! So simple and easy and quick and really delicious. I didn't (and wouldn't) change a thing. Except LOL maybe follow up on some of Winkki's suggestions. Really a great salad.
Fantastic!! And easy. :)
This is a great salad with a lot of delicious fresh flavor. I loved the blend of the veggies and spices.
Absoloutly delicious. I used freshly cooked chickpeas and served over warm brown rice- a simple, nourishing and entirely satisfying meal.
Wow! For being so simple to assemble and being made of such 'everyday' ingredients, this is definitely a case of the whole being *much* greater than the sum of the parts. It all really comes together in a unique way - the sweetness of the sugar, the spice of the cumin, the zing of the fresh ginger, the tartness of the lemon, the crunch of the peppers and onion, all over the base of chick peas. I was hooked after just one bite. I think this would be great in pita or tossed with tofu cubes - lots of ideas to play around with. Edited to add: I tried it again today and added some curry powder - also wonderful! Would be good with cubed paneer in it or over coconut rice, I think. Yay, more ways to play! :o) Thanks so much for posting!
I added a bed of young baby spinnach leaves to this...and a few slices of tomato..just to please the people who think a salad should be green too
