Chickpea Salad - Balila

Chickpea Salad - Balila created by Starrynews

I love this salad, the ingredients and the flavors are great. It is a fresh yet flavorful salad that can be used as a side dish or main dish lunch as I usually make it. I found this recipe in The Arab Table by: May Bsisu http://www.amazon.com/Arab-Table-Recipes-Culinary-Traditions/dp/0060586141 a few years back and have been making it ever since.

    This always gets requested by my friends at cookouts. I replace the onion with chopped cucumber and serve with toasted pita and lettuce leaves for utensil free snacking.

    Wonderful salad! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and used all the garnishes, including the feta. We loved the spiciness of the jalapenos and and cayenne. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

    Almost 4 1/2 stars. I used shallot for the onion and omitted the jalapeño as we don't like really spicy. I used less cayenne out of preference and organic grape tomatoes. We found this quite garlic/oniony. Made for NA*ME Tag.
