"Not too bad, the lemon juice can be more pronounced though...." See more"
"Instead of using the Adobo seasoning, we used our own mix of pepper and garlic powder. We also splashed it with a bit of red wine vinegar which gave the salad a tangy taste which was very good...." See more"
"Tried this recipe tonight, the cucumber got lost somewhere on the way home from the store, so we didn't have that; I think it would have made a great addition to this dish though! I also just made up ..." See morea lemon/olive oil dressing with a few dried herbs I had laying around; I drizzled a little over my plate and that was great for me. I think doing as recommended and tossing the vegetables in it would have made the dish too greasy for me. My 2 year old approved and actually ate some (a lot of times she won't even try a dish, so I was pleasantly surprised when she ate a few mouthfuls!) but my picky husband didn't like it and couldn't really place why - he listed a few things and basically it sounds like he didn't enjoy the flavour combination. If you like chickpeas, this is a great meal! Next time I would use cilantro instead of parsley, but that's just a personal preference. Overall I think it turned out great and although I probably won't be making it again for the family (since my husband didn't like it) I would definitely consider making it again, if it were just for me and someone less picky than my husband!!!"
