Recipe calls for chick peas, but black-eyed peas or cannelline are great also. A super summer salad made with cucumbers,feta cheese and onions. If you like hot, add a dash of red pepper sauce or a dash of cayenne.

Very fresh tasting salad, perfect for summer! I could barely taste the vinaigrette though which left it really falling back on the cucumber. Next time I might cut the cucumber to 3 cups and see what happens.Thanks!

Loved this. I've made it twice already. The first time I followed the directions and it was great, but the second time I tweaked it a little. Took out a tablespoon of oil, added a tablespoon of vinegar, and doubled the chick peas. Tastes great.

This was really refreshing and tasty. I used black-eyed peas and followed the recipe precisely to a wonderful result. This made a wonderful lunch to pack for work. I will be making this again. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.
