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.
Wow, this salad is incredible! There is so much flavor packed into such little pasta. I followed the recipe exactly other than omitting the optional nuts, and I loved the way all of the ingredients came together. I was worried that it would be overpoweringly sweet, but it ended up being a perfect blend between sweet, savory, and spicy. The spice mix is wonderful and smells divine while toasting. This will definitely be a favorite of mine from now on. Thanks for the lovely recipe!
So tasty! Could eat it daily!
