    Very simple and whipped it together in no time. I appreciate that there isn't an excessive amount of oil. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal (as we enjoyed it over greens/baby spinach), potluck, etc. Used fresh herbs from the garden. Love the crunch of the celery, too. For color, red onion was used. Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.

    Great salad, quick and healthy. Since the dressing is so simple, I found you really need the onion and herbs in there to make it all work. I definitely wouldn't leave the onion out, but any combo of fresh herbs would be great. Thanks for posting!

    Five stars for so many reasons--easy, attractive, healthy and oh yes, tasty.

    This is the best chickpea salad I've ever tried. This made the perfect and filling lunch for me today, and I'm looking forward to the leftovers! I halved the recipe and thought it made plenty. I used the sherry option and added plenty of kosher salt and pepper to the olive oil/sherry option. I used green pepper instead of red pepper, because that is what I had on hand. I'm sure the red pepper would make it even better! (I omitted the mint, becaused I've found out that I'm not overly crazy about the flavor of mint.) Thanks for a great chickpea salad recipe!
