I got this recipe from your magazine several years ago and have made it dozens of time since then. I don't use the garbanzo beans, and sometimes add cherry tomatoes. I have also substituted italian dressing in a pinch and tastes pretty much the same as the one in the recipe. Great recipe, everybody loves it.

I made this for Memorial Day and it was a big hit. I brought the leftovers to work the next day. All of my coworkers raved about it and to this day, I'm asked to bring it any time we do a pot luck

I have made this numerous times for gatherings or just for us. Sometimes I substitute vinegar for the lemon juice. Very good.
