About this recipe: This fresh, hearty salad makes great use of white chane and peas. It's very filling and also good for you. I love its spicy dressing.
I love garbanzos, I love peas; this was a perfect recipe for me! Delicious! Some minor adjustments: I doubled the peas to 1/2 cup, and reduced the olive oil to 4 T. In addition to tasting wonderful, the salad looked beautiful as well, and I think it would make a nice side dish for a summer bbq. Of course, with all the garlic and onions, I should probably put a bowl of mints right next to it! Thanks! - 23 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I skipped the peas. The garbanzos alone were really good, but I think I added more onion than I should have. Definately a nice chilled bean salad that will go in the recipe box! - 05 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make this often, but usually skip the seasoning/herbs/oil and replace with a few spoonfuls of ready-made pesto sauce - 14 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
