Delicious!! I made the the dried chickpeas the night before, and the following night I threw together the recipe in about 10 mins. It is super easy! I substituted the mayonnaise for greek yogurt. Also, I processed the garlic, onions, seasoning, etc. first and then added the artichokes, chickpeas, and capers so that I could keep a chunky texture. Absolutely delicious!!!!! Thanks for the recipe!

This was my first time using a food processor and was it didn't turn out chunky! It's more like hummus which is fine. The most important thing....the's great! Very delicious!!

I make this recipe all the time! It is so tasty. Goes great on bread with lettuce and tomato...or with crackers. Really good!

So good! This was the recipe of the week a couple weeks ago, so I gave it a try (I left out the capers and green peppers). It makes a great lunch with some low-salt Triscuits, and I think I'm going to try it as a fake tuna melt, too. Thanks, VT!
