"This Greek-style pasta salad would also be good tossed with fresh avocado and mint." — CHRISTINE_L

1 (19 ounce) can
chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
feta cheese, crumbled
pitted black olives
ground black pepper
fresh lemon juice
This was even better than I thought it would be. The dressing, with the lemon juice, was a light and refreshing departure from vinegar-based dressings. I left out the feta, but added chopped yellow pepper and cucumber, as well as fresh oregano and parsley. We and our out of town guests loved it. Just delicious, and a pretty and colorful addition to the plate.
Not a bad start but it needs a little something else. The dressing is pretty bland as is. I ended up added some italian dressing and red pepper flakes to spice it up. This salad gets better the longer it marinates (30 mins isn't long enough, overnight is best).
Great recipe! Next time I make it, though, I will reduce the amt. of salt (was a little salty), and add some chopped cucumber. I cut the black olives in half. I'll definitely make this again!
THIS WAS AWESOME! Anyone making this MUST use feta chese and kalamata (rich flavored Greek) olives.They go together like sauce and cheese on a pizza. Like others,I cut down on the onion and olive oil. Then I added some of the olive juice to the dressing. I also used whole cherry tomatoes (as someone said salad gets soggy in time), & some fresh parsley.Definately a keeper!
Very tasty. I only added 1/2 of an onion and it was plenty and probably only 1/4 cup of olive oil. What a great combination with plenty of healthy ingredients.
Very easy to make. I didn't follow the receipe exactly as I couldn't have it right in front of me. Biggest tip, don't forget to chill, I didn't (in a hurry with a hungry kid at my feet) and the flavours didn't have time to mix until I was almost finished eating it. I skipped the olives(I hate them) and garlic(forgot to get at the grocery store) and still was good.
Delicious! I used farfalle, shallot (I prefer the milder flavor), and half the dressing, and I added fresh oregano for even more of a Greek flavor. This was easy and quick, and definitely something I'd make again.
I love to make this salad, I like to add a seeded cucumber cubed! Yummy! Its so fresh and tastey!
