  • I substitute one can of black beans for one of the cans of garbanzo beans. My veggie sister and I love it for a cool summer dish. - 5/29/11

  • My 2 year old is allergic to all animal products so I've been searching for good alternatives that the entire family enjoys. This is a big winner. Great to keep in the fridge for quick meals. Thank you for sharing. - 8/29/10

  • i added a full cup of parsley to my mix and also some cubed extra firm tofu. this is a very filling salad, but a little high in caloric content. i think the tofu expands the protein value while decreasing the overall calorie load. adding a high value carbohydrate as a side makes this a complete meal - 7/3/10
