Altered ingredient amounts. 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! - 29 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. This was a great weeknight picnic recipe. Simple and quick and lots of flavour. I also decreased the amount of olive oil and increased the peas to 1/2 cup. This is definitely a keeper. - 29 Sep 2008


Was better the next day, but seemed to be lacking something, I just couldn't figure out what! - 29 Sep 2008
