Gonzo for garbanzos, Eleanor Glofka found a way to duplicate a favorite restaurant recipe at home. "It's excellent as a side dish, as an appetizer or spooned over a tossed salad," she writes from Mountain Top, Pennsylvania. "It keeps for days in the refrigerator, but it never lasts that long in my house!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 13, 2011

This was very tasty! I used green onions vs. the red. And of course it had to have garlic. I also added 2T. lemon juice and a T. of fresh mint. I would definitely make it again.
