    Really enjoyed it. My wife liked it even more. Very flavorful. I tried the red onion and avocado which were good additions. However, be careful not to add too much onion, it can get a bit acidic. Next time I will try the feta or goat cheese. I may add a few nuts to give it more crunch. The farro was tasty (my first time trying it). Maybe, I will decrease it and add some spinach as was mentioned in another review, this will lower the carbs.

    The dressing tasted a bit like himmis. my family enjoyed the dish and I expect it to be better since I had to forego tomatoes.

    Loved it. This is one of my new go-to recipes.
    Fantastic recipe! I baked the chickpeas instead of frying and they turned out lovely. The salad was equally as tasty on the second day

    Great! Added roasted mushrooms and a little sprinkle of Maldon Sea Salt. But either way, yum!

    Made this several times. I leave salt out for my tastes, maybe heavier on spices. A go-to salad in my house!

    Added beets and black olives. Really really good! Added beet juice to the dressing and it tasted great but of course turns it pepto bismol pink so if you can’t eat things that look funny, don’t add beet juice haha. Also good with feta

    Sooo good! Reminded me of falafel. Planning on adding black olives and mixed greens (maybe spring mix, spinach, or arugula) next time. Maybe even pine nuts, too :)

    Easy to make, healthy and delicious!! The dressing is amazing! I added mixed greens and avocados and extra cayenne pepper in the chickpeas!l which are great as a snack as well.
