    Yum!!! But I'm not sure how you justify the description as high fiber (only 2 grams) and LOW FAT (18 grams of fat!!!!) - 12/29/08

    This is absolutely delicious! I love the chickpea/feta combination. I use half the olive oil and more lemon. Now I'm going to try it with white wine vinegar instead of lemon. I love the vinagrey taste! - 6/18/09

    delicious! i used President brand fat free feta which brings the fat content down to only 6gms. You can up the fiber content really easy as well by changing what veggies you use. I notice the nutrition info here uses yellow peppers/cucumbers/onions, try adding blanched beans or carrots. - 5/7/09

    Delicious! I'd add fresh oregano whenever I find it in the grocery store - amazing taste! Goat cheese feta is also wonderful and lower in fat than cow's milk feta (and easier to digest for anyone who is lactose intolerant) - 1/14/09

    This was very yummy. I quadrupled this recipe. I cut the cheese in half and added the same measurement in chickpeas. I also added a 1/2 T of fresh garlic and I used fresh oregano. Yummy! I will make it again. It was super quick and easy. - 3/27/08

    I really wanted to love this recipe, but the lemon juice was just too strong for my taste. This did improve with having the salad in the fridge for several hours. I will make again and reduce the lemon juice. - 1/8/09

  • like the recipe, wish it was written for more than one person..made it for eight people, used less lemon juice than called for, I think it would have been too much to use 1tbs/person. also used garlic olive oil and grapeseed oil just to experiment...loved it. - 10/1/12
