    This was a tasty recipe that was great as a packable lunch. I made this exactly as posted, except I used cumin powder instead of cumin seed. The vinaigrette has a lovely flavor to it. For the fresh herbs, I used parsley and cilantro, which gave it a really verdant flavor. I was generous with the salt and pepper, as I find chick peas can use it. Thanks for sharing this healthy recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010.

    Wow! I don't mind chickpeas but let's face it they can be a bit bland. This was a wonderful way to liven them up. A really nice citrus theme that was wonderful served along with some chicken kebabs and pineapple slices. Only change I made is that red jalapenos aren't available locally so I ommitted them.
