    I was concerned on the calories in this recipe and I used the calculator on here and I got 1,538 calories for whole recipe. At 14 servings, it is 107.1 calories a serving. Thank you for the calorie alert. - 3/7/07

    I thought this was very good! I make the traditional three bean salad but adding the chick peas made it all that much better. It was colorful and appealing I will make this version from now on. - 8/18/07

    Watch out folks - the calorie content is WAY off. 14 servings x 20 calories = 280 cals for the total dish??? There is 630 cals in the olive oil alone, not to mention 4 cans of beans!!! Sounds delicious and nutritious, but high cal! - 3/7/07

    This is one of my favorite salads! The recipe I first saw used lemon juice instead of vinegar. You can eat it the day it is made, but it is definitely better after sitting overnight.
    It is also great if you add some sweet onions or chopped celery. - 3/7/07

  • Quite good, but needing a bit more seasonings. I added garlic, ginger, and cilantro also. I use a slotted spoon to drain off excess liquid. Marinating for a bit also helps increase the flavor. - 6/8/07

  • The flavor is good, although a bit sweeter than I would like because I took out the teaspoon of salt to accommodate my low-sodium diet. I'm disappointed, however, in the highly inaccurate calorie count. - 3/13/07
