Made this for the first time today... I am dieting and looking for something filling, nutritious and tasty. This didn't disappoint. I don't really like cheese so took out the cheese and added a flat mushroom I could not get any chives so increased the other two herbs. Veggies cooked to perfection. I love this. Quick and easy to make and enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

I thought this was delicious. Very tasty, very healthy (protein and complex carbs in the chickpeas, plenty of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre in the vegetables and even some monounsaturated fat in the olive oil) and easy to make. An added bonus that it's pretty cheap too if you already have fresh herbs at home.

I added some chopped avocado for extra creaminess and healthiness.

I'll definitely be making this again.

The recipe shows 2 red onions, it should read 1 red pepper.

There's a serious mistake in the list of ingredients. Instead of red pepper it says onion.

Pleasantly surprised with this one ... I used a white onion, 1 courgette, 1 can of chickpeas, chives only and no tomatoes, to make a dish for 2. Wasn't expecting much but it was really tasty. The feta and dressing top it off nicely.

Tried this and thought it was just delicious. Realtively simple to make and a great hearty meal. I added salmon and used lime instead of lemon for the dressing.

Very godd and simple recipe. I threw in chunked yellow squash as supermarket had no zucchini (courgette). They worked well; soaked up a lot of the other flavours. I'll probably try leaving out the tomatoes next time as they went a tad too squishy and looked a bit messy in the dish.

I LOVE IT ! Quick Easy Cheap Healthy Low Fat - I did not know it was so easy to be healthy.

Made something very similar with what I had in the veggie box, substituting green pepper for red and using only one courgette. The roast veggies were lovely. Used only one can of chickpeas and that was plenty. Very nice and went well with the spinach pies we had. I had the brilliant idea of serving it neither hot nor cold, more of a room-temperature, but it wasn't as nice as I'd thought. Next time I'd serve it hot.

Excellent, we used ordinary yellow onions and green peppers then added some aubergines. VERY filling and I expect healthy too.

The loveliest salad ever!

So so nice and really healthy. I roasted the veg in spray oil and then only used 2tbsp oil in the dressing to reduce the calorie content right down. This is going to be a new favourite

very tasty. I'll try with different vegs, too!

My husband and I have made this over and over, and we love it, but we have it hot. We use tinned tomatoes for those times when we don't have any fresh ones on hand, and we also sometimes use roasted peppers from a jar. White onions or red onions, regular size or scallions, it's still delicious. I use herbes de Provence instead of parsley, emmenthal or Maasdam instead of feta, and no matter the variation, it's always finished up either the same night it's prepared or as a box lunch the next day. Good stuff! (And I've got some in the oven right now!)

This is fantastic. It's the tastiest, most nutritious and colourful salad I've had in years, and very easy to put together. I didn't have any chives so I just used lots of parsley and mint, and it was beautiful. I made a big batch with the intention of having some cold over the following couple of days, but guess what happened...!

Real easy & great way of getting a veg fix! I cooked some broccoli to throw in with it & olives along with the feta & chickpeas. Have leftovers for tomorrow.

I didn't like it. I made it as an evening meal which was a bit silly, maybe i'll try it again as a summer lunch.
Not a very helpful review really!

Should it be ''one red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks' rather than 'one red onion'? :)
