      Wonderful salad. I added some sliced avocado since I had some and served it all over a bed of iceberg lettuce -- my DH's favorite. I also add the minced garlic to the zucchini when blanching since I prefer a more cooked garlic flavor (more mellow) in my salads. Thanks, Pneuma! Made for Aussie/New Zealand Recipe Swap #19.

      Thanks for a delicious and different way to use zucchini! I double the recipe, using a 15 oz can of chickpeas, and one zucchini and one summer squash (I didn't blanch them, and the texture was fine). It wasn't too spicy, and I served it with whole wheat pita - yum!

      I liked this and it was fun to make the spice paste. I first tasted it at warm room temperature and liked it a lot. It was less enjoyable refrigerated, so next time I will serve it at room temp. I might saute the zucchini next time. Now must figure out what to do with the leftover spice paste...
