    I tweaked this one quite a bit! I left out the onion (b/c I didnt have one!) and put all the ingredients in a blender and ate it with multi-grain saltine crackers! Quite good. - 3/22/08

    Loved the garbonzo bean and lemon idea, but it still needs tweaking. I agree with marcella2007 aboiut the onion. I'd also cut the mustard in 1/2 so it doesn't overpower the other flavors. - 3/24/07

    This recipe had too much onion, so reduced it to .5 cup. Otherwise, YUMMY! - 3/15/07
