      Nice salad, will definitely use again. The capsicum made it a bit sweet (not overpoweringly sour or onion flavored like a lot of salads) and the mint flavor really stood out nicely. I added a little bit of lime juice and a dash of onion powder as well. I used chickpeas which were nice, but have also eaten this before with kidney beans which I think goes really well. This would also be nice with other additions such as crumbled feta cheese, olives and/or cucumber.

      This is so delicious!! I used chickpeas and followed it all even the optional cilantro but left out the bell pepper out of preference. I would like to make this again for DH and try leaving out the cilantro to see if it's even better per preference. Made for Family Picks, ZWT6 NA*ME regions for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

      We loved this!! The flavors were wonderful. I used black beans, and will certainly try it again with other types of beans too. We really enjoyed the contrast between the spicy cayenne pepper and the cooling mint. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6
