Developed for the RSC#7 contest, this is easy and the taste is flavorful! This also makes a great dip or sauce to serve over vegs., etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix dressing ingredients together in a bowl.If you would like a little sweetness, add the brown sugar. But try it without first. If the sauce is too thick, you may thin with a little water or lemon juice.
  2. Slice vegetables for salad. Add chickpeas. Place on plate, salt and pepper to taste, but remember the dressing is full of flavor! Sprinkle feta cheese over the top.
  3. Add the dressing and enjoy! The dressing is also good over felafels, vegs., and grains.
  4. If taking on a picnic, pack the salad and the dressing separately. Mix together when serving.

absolutely delicious! Nothing 'shy' about this dressing - full of assertive layers of flavour (just as I like it). Tried it first without the sugar - good, but a bit 'rough' around the edges...the 1/2 tsp of brown sugar really smoothed them out. Loved the veggy/cheese combo, which I used to fill a pita wrap. This is one salad that makes an excellent sandwich! Good going, chef.

This an interesting combination. While I liked the dressing, I thought the salad itself would have been better if the vegetables had been diced instead of sliced. I used a sweet white onion in place of the red simply because I didn't have the red. I did add the optional brown sugar. Thanks!
