No need. Just a suggestion. It was a sort of rhetorical but seems to be a problem so I will edit it out.
And I did offer a salad suggestion exactly as she had asked for--beans and a dressing.
But I didn't realize that suggesting a way to prepare an ingredient in one of her salads wouldn't be OK.

If you have chickpeas and fava beans, or just chickpeas ( or maybe you call them garbanzo beans) you might try making some mini-falafels, and toss them with your rice, and some diced and seeded roma tomatos and cucumbers, and a simple tahini sauce... i think this salad has some good potential but it needs something else, and I can't quite place my finger on what.... perhaps some coarse-chopped fresh italian parsley? Anyways, I'll let you decide how to finish it if you decide to run with this idea. Good luck!

The recipe I have, supposedly is from "The Big Texan Steakhouse", at least, according to that cookbook. However, the page I have is a copy, so I don't know what cookbook that is. This recipe doesn't use Worchestershire, fresh oregano, Tabasco, or corn.
I'd love to see your recipe Allen. Anything with a combination of these ingredients is always good!
