Very nice salad. Definitely mix the dressing ingredients separately as noted by other reviewers. I took it to a party and served it on shredded lettuce. I'm now using the leftovers in tossed salad.

Delicious, refreshing and hearty salad for the hot days of summer -- and also an excellent gluten-free substitute for pasta salad. A larger portion is a meal in itself. I plan to make this Sunday afternoon for work lunches next week. Incidentally, I used red balsamic vinegar instead of white (because that's what I had in the house) and it was still great.

My husband made this last night with only a couple of substitutions - I don't care for chickpeas so he used great northern beans instead, roma tomatoes from our garden instead of grape tomatoes, and we didn't have white balsamic vinegar so he used a little regular balsamic and white vinegar combined. Delicious!!! We ate as a side dish with grilled chicken and it was a perfect meal. I brought some for lunch today and cannot wait to eat it.

I wanted something light for dinner and thought I would try this salad as I had all the ingredients. I also added parsley and cilantro - it was a huge hit! My hubby and I LOVED this for dinner - very filling but light at the same time, and so delicious!

This was EPIC!!! I used regular balsamic and regular oregano because my grocery store and my cabinet are both pretty basic. Even with those changes, this salad was a home run.

Tasty. I followed the recipe the first time I made this delicious salad. The second time I used black beans instead of chick peas. Also, delicious. This is tasty for lunch and a quick snack at any time of the day. Good with an assortment of olive oils and balsamic vinegars..I have mixed orange olive oil with blackberry ginger, and cider vinegar. Tasty and healthy.
