    This is absolutely delicious! It is very fresh. The tastes and textures are wonderful. Very healthy too. I ate it with whole-grain tortilla chips. A definite keeper!

    This is delicious. I modified it a little as I was a little tired of chick peas, so deleted them, and I put the salad in a whole wheat mini pita. Yummy and I am looking forward to lunch tomorrow as I eat it for lunch. Thanks Jason.
