Pros: Holy chickpeas! There are a lot of chickpeas! I possibly could make hummus with that many chickpeas. The entire salad has a nice mild dill aroma. Tasty cucumber dill dressing makes me want to eat my vegetables. It’s surprising the croutons didn’t get soggy from being frozen. Good amount of chicken. Enough dressing to coat everything, if you don’t add too much lettuce. This might be my favorite Lean Cuisine Salad Additions variety. Chickpeas and garbanzo beans are fun words to say.
Cons: Not a lot of red peppers, but even fewer olives. I’m never sure how much lettuce to add. Chickpeas didn’t have any flavor, they just seems to bring the fiber. The more lettuce added, the lighter the dressing’s flavor becomes. Placing frozen dressing in room temperature water doesn’t do a good job of thawing it out before the other ingredients are done in the microwave. Bringing a container of lettuce with you to work and then having everyone wonder if you’re on a rabbit’s diet.
