Not too bad, the lemon juice can be more pronounced though.

Low calorie meal that delivers great flavor! I didn’t have the called-for seasoning nor lemon juice so I substituted standard pepper and rice vinegar in the same proportions to taste. Served it over a bed of baby leaf spinach. Delicious!

Great flavor in this salad. I didn't have mozzarella so used shredded Mexican blend cheese instead. It did help to let it marinate a little in the fridge to help blend the flavors. I served it over fresh baby spinach. Overall, quick and a really nice side.

This was delicious! I don't keep fresh parsley in my fridge, but I always have cilantro, so I subbed that. I also had sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella and used hierloom baby tomatoes. So good! Even Grumpy, who proclaims to hate chickpeas liked this salad and took it in his lunchbox! :)

I followed the recipe with the exception of feta cheese instead of mozzarella. It tasted a bit bland to me so I added dried mint, marjoram, and basil. Then I thought that I would use some of the Mediterranean fruit that I had on hand so threw in some chopped dates and figs and a potato that I had left from the Russian salad that I made Fri. So after all of those additions, it was fantastic! That's why I gave it 4 stars. It is a wonderful basic start to a great healthy filling salad.

My family love this salad. I made it without goya and mozzarella. It was really delicious.
