Comment

I made this recipe for a potluck (with mint) and it was well received. Then I made it again for home (with parsley) and added a can of rinsed and drained garbanzo beans. This works great as a side with grilled meat/fish/poultry or as a main dish salad. Leftovers made for a tasty and satisfying lunch.
