Garbanzo Bean Salad

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.
Enjoy :)
