I made this while in "baking mode", and weighed and measured all ingredients very precisely. I think this may have been my mistake. The salad, while nice, turned out too dry for my taste, and I think I would rather have more spinach, for example, and a smaller amount of garbanzo beans. Adjusted for personal preference, however, this recipe has great potential. Sorry to be so nit-picking. Thank you for the recipe.
