    Recipe calls for way too much cumin. Didn't find it zesty at all. Probably would be better with some additional seasoning and maybe some tomatoes, cukes, etc. - 5/14/08

    I enjoyed this, but would add a few other ingredients such as cucumbers or cherry tomatoes. My husband asked if I would decrease cumin next time. - 4/19/08

    I loved this recipe - for those wondering, I divided the lettuce into four bowls, topped each bowl with 1/4 of the chickpea mixture and drizzled with lemon juice. YOu could toss it all together and serve that way and it would still be pretty tasty - I just did the chickpeas on top for presentation - 4/16/08

    Pretty tasty, but not as zesty as I had hoped. I like the idea of serving in a pita - this might make the flavors more intense. - 10/6/08

    To all the people who commented on the instructions not being complete or not knowing what to do with the lettuce, you obviously didn't read the whole recipe as it says clearly, "Add lemon juice, mix well and serve over a bed of mixed lettuce." Mix the lettuce and serve the rest over it, clear? - 11/12/09
