"A very quick and easy Middle Eastern salad that can be made in minutes. Sometimes I add a little cumin to this or sprinkle some cayenne pepper on the top."

"Your flavourful delicious salad was my dinner tonight and I absolutely loved every spoon of it. I did not use even a pinch of salt in this because the flavour of the lemon juice seemed to be perfect on the taste buds and to me, salt was just not necessary. I did sprinkle some black pepper on top and mixed together all the ingredients. THANKS A ZILLION for an awesome simple QUICK salad!"
"this was much better than i anticipated!all i changed was the addition of a little garlic salt, and white pepper. the flavors go very well together, and now i have one more recipe for tahini. we only get it in big jars here, and hummus doesnt take that much. thanks alot!"
"I love chickpeas and this salad was delicious, quick and using foods that I always have on hand. Not a thing to change."
"YUM!! I used a 15.5 ounce can of beans and some fabulous cherry tomatoes fresh from the Farmer's Market (I had a ton so I used about 2 dozen... and then some!!) I added about 2 cloves of chopped garlic, sea salt, coarse pepper and a teaspoon or so of raw sesame seeds...I also used probably more than twice the suggested amount of lemon juice (I love lemon!!) So good , so easy and as promised - SO QUICK!!! Great recipe, loved it, Thanks!"
"I made this for a portluck barbeque this weekend (I doubled the recipe). At first, I made the recipe exactly as posted, and then found that the tahini flavor was overpoweriing for me (I guess I don't like it as much as I thought!). So I made some changes: added 1 choppped cucmber, fresh parsley, green onions, and LOTS more lemon juice. The result was quite nice, it was well received at the barbeque. Thanks!"
"I can see how tahini is almost an acquired taste. But I acquired it before making this recipe. (I used to be a tahini hater) This is yummy for chickpeas which I haven't liked in salads. DD1 (4 years old) liked it too. I used nice plum tomatoes, a better tahini than some but not the best, sea salt and the freshly squeezed lemon juice. No additional seasoning. I want to try it out on DH sometime and update."
"I didn't find this to be particularly good. The same ingredients go well in hummus, but that's cooked. I tried adding pepper flakes and garlic and such to give it some flavour, but it was overall very uninteresting."
"I made this last night to go with the Moroccan chicken recipe on the homepage. It was ok, but I added some cumin and some red pepper flakes... My husband liked it, I didn't. Today I tried it warmed and it was much better. I also think it needs some fresh herbs... parsley would probably be good."
"After reading all the great reviews on this salad, I had to make it. I love chickpeas, tahini, tomatoes and the taste of lemons. But to be honest, it looked terrible when stirring it as the tahini does not mix well. It didnt taste too bad (I added garlic and cumin), but noticed that after it sat in the fridge for a while, it went all watery on the bottom and looked even worse! Recipe wouldve been better omitting the tahini and using plain olive olive oil instead. Sorry but I had to be honest here."
"Awesome, simple, quick, healthy and yummy. The blend of flavors rocks. I just made it for a side-dish tonight, but whatever is left tomorrow is going on a pita as my lunch. I only had 2 tomatoes, and it's still fine. I did add a little cumin because this recipe is versatile that way. Next time maybe a little garlic. Oh, the possibilities."
"Great! I added the cumin and cayenne pepper as suggested. I omitted the salt. Thanks for sharing!"
"Quick and easy and tasty! Thanks! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag."
"Very tasty. I cut down the amount of tahini by half of a tablespoon and next time I will only use one tablespoon of tahini. I didn't use any salt and some cloves of roasted garlic. If you like this recipe, you will definitely enjoy http://www.recipezaar.com/51631. Anyone who likes this recipe would no doubt also like hummus."
"Excellent recipe. Quick, easy and surprisingly good for something with only 5 ingredients. Great way of using tahini and chickpeas!"
