|Do you have a funny or interesting story about your recipe|
Around 25 years ago, a healthy grocery store opened in our town. They sold take out containers of chick pea and spinach salad for $14 per pound. Every time we went to the store or even drove past, my son used to ask me to buy him a container of chick pea salad. As healthy and delicious as the salad was, I thought the price was outrageous! So I bought a container and took it home and figured out many of the ingredients and played around with the recipe until we all thought it was delicious! This makes a great snack, lunch, or side dish. It is a great pita filler as well! Everyone seems to like this salad, even children. It is simple and quite economical...best of all, I now make about 3 pounds of salad for around $5.00. If you cook chick peas instead of using canned, the price could be as low as $3.00 for 3 pounds of salad.
