    So good!! I didn’t have peppers, but I threw in some cauliflower I had and it worked perfectly! A great one to throw in whatever fresh veg you have 😊 (I also added feta)

    Tasted great. Very healthy. A little mild for my taste. Would recommend some additional seasoning.

    I love this salad. Really easy to make, and I've substituted black beans for the chickpeas and still turns out great.
