    WhatExit's Note:

    From Womens Health magazine. Reading through my magazine came across a number of summer salad recipes and they all looked great. I was inspired to make this and the Black Bean Mozarella salad tonight. Doubled the recipes to last for the week. Posted them here so I don't lose them.

      My friends and I all enjoyed this! I used dry chickpeas that I soaked overnight and then boiled for about an hour, until tender. I was weary about the raisins, as I usually don't like them in savory foods, but they were a nice touch. It didn't have a very strong curry flavor (one of my friends doesn't like curry, so that was good for her). I think next time I'll add more. (Though, I am in Ireland, so perhaps the curry powder here is not very strong....)
