Sort By :
"Really enjoyed this.....I like a bit of kick to my food so just added a little hot sauce to the vinaigrette, also cut back on the olive oil. Served the feta separate as the kids don't care for it."
"For a little "kick" I added a 2 tablespoons of Melinas "Pepperino" to the olive oil"
"GREAT salad! I doubled the chickpea amount and had a great meatless main dish salad."
"Garden chickpea salad is a family favourite in our home and one we make when we have company coming or just want a simple meal. It tastes so good, we don't usually change much, just the flavour is about all. It's a keeper and definitely going in my recipe box."
