    Great looking salad.
    Love chickpeas in salads. Makes it filling and a good protein option for vegetarians.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you Preeti, I am trying to incorporate more vegetarian recipes or suggestions on how to make it more vegetarian.
      Thank you for stopping by Giangi’s Kitchen.

    Absolutely a delightful salad, any excuse to enjoy some dates. Filling and healthy too. Hopefully will get a chance to make this salad soon but without the cresson. Will use other salad leaves.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you, Mayuri. You can replace the cresson with arugula or spinach, it will be delicious as well and I am sure you will enjoy it.
      Enjoy it and thank you for stopping by Giangi’s Kitchen.

    This is a wonderful salad. I love garbonzo beans are one of my favourite foods.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you! I would eat them every other day if I could. Love them simple with olive oil and vinegar or in a more elaborate salad.

    I share your love for chickpeas and also use it in salads or chillies. I usually buy a large pack -5kg or so, boil small parts, and freeze it, so that is ready when I need it. Healthy, filling and delicious!

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      That is fantastic!! I love chickpeas and you are giving some sound and fantastic advice, thank you.

  5. Sue says:

    Wonderful salad with an unusual combination of flavors that works so well together! Bravo!

  6. Kris says:

    This looks so yummy and refreshing! I’ve never had watercress, but will try with arugula.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you! You will enjoy it with the arugula. The watercress is similar in taste as the arugula.

  7. Colette says:

    I love cresson, especially cresson salad! We make them a lot in Madagascar. This recipe is delicious; I can’t wait to try it! 😋

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you so much Colette. I was so fortunate to found cresson here and jump to the opportunity to prepare something with it.
      Enjoy this cresson, garbanzo beans, dates salad and love your feedback one you do.
      Bon Appetit!!

    I love trying something different and this salad sounds delicious. I bet the sumac and lemon really freshen up the earthy flavor of the chickpeas. and the dates give it just a touch of sweetness. Can’t wait to try this with grilled chicken or fish. Thanks.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you! You will love it with any poultry, fish, or meats. Full of flavor that will satisfy any appetite. THe sumac and lemon bring out such a fantastic flavor to this salad.
