Tired of eating lettuce salads or looking to inspire your diet?
Try this colorful Garbanzo Bean Salad!
Garbanzo beans are high in protein, fiber, and low in fat. I use canned garbanzo beans in this recipe, so be aware of how much sodium is in the can you pick up at your grocery store.
I choose low sodium 5% or less.
What you need:
2 cans of Garbanzo beans (low sodium), drained
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
2 salad or pickling cucumbers, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
1/4 purple onion, finely chopped
the juice of a half of lemon
1/2 cup or less of your favorite Vinaigrette
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate!
I use Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette made with extra Virgin Olive Oil.
