I thought this was OK. Kinda bland so I'd recommend adding in some garlic powder or maybe some dijon mustard.

I made this exactly as written except I subbed onion flakes for raw onion...I liked the combo of lime and lemon a lot but felt it was missing something. I think next time I'll use a regular fresh onion and maybe some of the other reviewers' suggestions because this is a good base!

I've had a lot of chickpea salad sandwiches, but I like this one best. The lemon and dill make a great flavor combination, and the fact that it's not swimming in mayo is quite nice. We like it on whole wheat bread with lettuce, tomato, and sprouts. Thanks for a handy & tasty lunch recipe!
