"Very tasty. I love the idea of using my veggies from my garden. Nice and fresh, smells great cooking on the stove."

"I made this as directed except that I used chick peas instead of white beans, and I used fresh herbs from my garden for the seasoning. Next time I will make it a little spicier but it was delicious. I like it cold on hot , humid summer days."
