Thanks for such a simple but very tasty way to make chickpeas. I adjusted the recipe ingredients a bit based on my own tastes. For the dressing I reduced the acid part to 2 T of wine vinegar and 1/2 a lemon, about 1 1/2 T juice. I reduced the garlic to 1 clove and I used a garlic press instead of mincing. Added 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. I used green onions & left out the red bell pepper. Although I think the reb bell pepper tastes good I have a kid who doesn't. Finally, I doubled the chickpeas to 3 cups. Its a keeper!
I came across this recipe in the midst of a garbanzo craving. This was a quick and easy salad to put together. As a personal preference, I diced the onion so that every thing was more of an equal size. The dressing was good, if a bit tart, but with a touch more salt, it balanced out nicely. Thanks, I would make this tasty salad again to soothe a craving!
