I was not as impressed with this as the other reviewers.

I found it was surprisingly bland. The 1/4 tsp of the various spices really didn't cut it for such a big salad. If i make it again, I will seriously up the spices.

Excellent salad, delicious flavors. I only used half an onion (prefer lighter onion flavor), subbed pine nuts for peanuts, and tossed in some crumbled feta, because I had some to use up in the fridge. Very lovely dish.

Loved this salad. Served with Grilled Moroccan Chicken. Had a little left the next day and the flavors were even better. I didn't have chickpeas and made with fresh clementines.
