This tastes wonderful with all sorts of meals - especially anything done on the bbq. The beans do need to be soaked overnight.

This makes a very good and easy salad. The cumin seemed a little stronger the day after, so next time I will use slightly less (actually, I used slightly more than the ingredient list's amount, so the recipe is fine.) Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

Reviewed for ZWT9- Made as written, except that I soaked my chickpeas overnight and then cooked in the pressure cooker. A lovely salad that makes a great side
