Moroccan Chickpea Salad

"This tastes wonderful with all sorts of meals - especially anything done on the bbq. The beans do need to be soaked overnight."

    It's the dressing that makes this such a WOW recipe, the cumin really pumps up the flavor factor. I have used different vegetables in this, although always with chickpeas, and it's always good. I usually add cucumber, bell pepper (any color), and a little chopped fresh cilantro and flat leaf parsley (both). If it's for home (not a get together) I usually serve it on top of greens. Thank you for a great recipe.

    I was looking for something light for lunch and this really hit the spot! All of the flavors worked so well together. I only had a can of garbanzo beans so I used that instead of dried. Ate some on lettuce as a salad and at some just as it was. It got better with each day it sat in the fridge :) :)

    This makes a very good and easy salad. The cumin seemed a little stronger the day after, so next time I will use slightly less (actually, I used slightly more than the ingredient list's amount, so the recipe is fine.) Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

    Reviewed for ZWT9- Made as written, except that I soaked my chickpeas overnight and then cooked in the pressure cooker. A lovely salad that makes a great side

    I love this recipe!! It is so easy to make and delicious. I used cherry tomatoes ( cut in half) instead of regular and used red onion instead of scallions. This recipe is perfect for summer picnics.
