There is a story behind this one. I prepared and cut everything , made the sauce before supper. When I went to put the spinach in ....None. So I took out the salad leftover from last night and guess what, lots of spinach left over, so I picked all that I could out for finish the recipe. By the way that was fantastic. None left over for tomorrow. Hubby used the left over sauce to dip the bagette in. Thank you for the recipe. Made for ZWT4 and the Chic Chefs.
Absolutely delicious! I wanted something quick and filling at lunch today and this was just the thing. Most of the ingredients are on my favorites list and they come together so very well in this salad. For a change I didn't alter a single thing, I didn't need to! This is very satisfying and hearty without a lot of fat. Thanks for this one Parsley!
Such good flavors! I only deviated from the instructions slightly. In step 4, I added the chickpeas and cooked till they were warmed through. I then poured that mixture into a bowl and then added the baby spinach from the farmers' market--just the warmth was enough to wilt. I loved this, Parsley! Thanks!
