This was very easy to prepare. I planned to serve this as a spread on crackers as part of a snack tray. I found the texture of this salad a little odd for my tastes. (I think it was the garbanzo beans). I did add the suggested Tabasco to spice it up a little. I also added dried parsley flakes to perk it up visually.
I liked the combination of flavors but was not sure of the smooth consistency. I cut up the tomato, onion and pepper, put everything into a blender, and pulsed. Left the lots of small pieces in mix. Lined a half pita with bibb lettuce and this filling. Very tasty but could use some spicing up for my taste.
The flavor of this was not particularly appealing to me. I ate it for lunch two days in a row. I did like it better the second day, chilled, and with lettuce between two pieces of nutty wheat toast - but I suspect I was somewhat covering up the flavor.
I made the salad exactly as directed. This made for a very pleasant tasting and healthy lunch.
I thought this was just ok, not great. I did have to add salt and pepper and lemon juice to mine to give it some taste. I thought it was a waste of feta cheese as the flavor of the cheese isn't noticeable. I also would add to this recipe to chill it for the flavors to mix together. Sorry but it was just average.
This got raves from 3 people who had this as a dip with butter crackers. Thanks for posting this! :)
