hmmm, just realized that the basil is, in fact, part of the original recipe. I liked it so much, I must have though it was my own addition :)

This is a lovely salad! I have made it as is, and it was good. The next time I made it, I swapped the chickpeas for white beans and lima beans for edamame (and fresh fava beans once), then added a sprig of basil, chopped, and it was a great variation. The basil just added a little something that made it even better than the original recipe. It also freezes well, as I found out after making a double batch and having lots of it left over.
