A tasty, healthy salad. I didn't have tomatoes so used mushrooms as extra veg and we served this with feta stuffed peppers (so omitted the feta in the salad). The other half said it was great food for his triathlon training too - bonus!

Just made this tonight for myself and my husband. Not sure if it would stretch to 4 people unless they weren't particularly hungry. Lovely flavours, and will make again. Served it with piri piri chicken, but would go well with any grilled or baked meat and fish.

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.

This looks and sounds delicious. Chickpeas are such a key cupboard stable. We love chickpeas so for a v. different twist we actually baked them in a 'cake' style recipe... https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/03/28/cheesy-chickpea-cake/

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.

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