    Mirj's Note:

    This is one of my new favorite things to eat. If I want to make this non-dairy I just use some Tofutti sour cream. Prep and cooking time are if using dried chickpeas. If using canned chickpeas the time is minimal.

      I made this for our barbecue yesterday and it was a hit all around! Absolutely delicious and so easy. I halved the recipe since we had so many salads and used canned chickpeas. I did't heat them as stated, basically because I didn't read that part of the recipe! I also used fat free sour cream instead of the yogurt, just because it's what I had on hand. The only addition was some dried greek seasonings because I did't have any thyme and some diced tomato because I had an abundance of them. Superb and very well liked. Thanks!

      Really nice and unusual salad! The only change I made was to use a bit of onion salt instead of sliced red onions but I think it didn't make much difference :) Thanks!

      Now that this salad has been marinating in the fridge for a couple of days, the dressing is much better. I think I should cut down on the parsley (by half) next time, but this salad is pretty good after marinating for at least a day.
