I made this salad because I was growing some mint, and needed to find a use for it. I was intrigued by the garbanzo beans/raisin combination. I made the salad as the directions stated, and the first night it was very bland. My husband thought there was something missing also. However, the next day, the salad was much, much better. The flavors had been able to mix together, and I liked the combination of cucumbers/beans and raisins. The mint wasn't very strong, but it was a nice surprise in some mouthfuls. I'd give it 1 star the day you make it, but 4 stars if you let it set.

I didn't have celery and used half a fuji apple instead. Also didn't use the beans and red wine vinegar! :P The salad still turned out pretty ok! Will try another time with the beans! Thanks for the recipe!

Hubby thought it was a little "strong" (vinegary) but I loved it. Up the sweetness though, more honey.
