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

This was delightful and very easy. It makes a great take-along lunch. I made this exactly as posted, except I used canned chickpeas, which made the preparation even easier. Made for ZWT6.

I actually changed this one a lot. I used canned chickpeas. I added the ingredients in a crockpot and let cook on low for several hours. Used a masher/fork to mash some of it after it was done and then added a little bit more spice. Used black olives and pureed onion instead of scallions. I can't remember why I did it that way, but there must have been a good reason. Oh well. Turned out great anyway!

Super easy and super yummy. I make this whenever I'm asked to bring food for a an occasion. I can't ever find pitted kalamata olives, so I slice up whatever I can find at the grocers that's pitted.

I just made this and it needs to chill for 4 hours. I can tell you right now we are going to LOVE this recipe. I really enjoy the cilantro and scallions with the chickpeas. The kalamata olives that I thought I hated, well my first jar of these olives must have been bad or I just did not like them in the soup recipe that I made. I love these olives and I put 12 of them in the salad. The scallions I used were very large so I only used 2. Evelyn thank you for this great recipe. I know my oldest DD will love it as much as I. She will surely pack a bowl of this in her lunch tomorrow, no doubt about it. I made this for ZWT III 2007 - North Africa/ Middle East Region.

I love this recipe!! It is so easy to make and delicious. I used cherry tomatoes ( cut in half) instead of regular and used red onion instead of scallions. This recipe is perfect for summer picnics.

Well, of course I was going to like this - I can eat chickpeas straight out of the can, plain, and I adore them in salads! I made 1/2 recipe (and used one 400 g can of chickpeas instead of boiling my own - was that very bad of me?? ;-) and just... ate... all of it... the whole 1/2 recipe for supper! And added a bit of salt. Mm, salt. Thanks so much for the recipe Ev!
