Garbanzo Bean Salad


I started making this dish years ago before I ever accepted the idea that meat doesn't need to be served with every meal. I love how fast and easy it is to prepare. This dish is so versatile and flavorful you can make it when uninvited guests show up as a quick dip or turn it into a full dinner meal by adding some chicken and then have it for lunch as a "salad" the next day!


2 cups or 1 can garbanzo beans , rinse well
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup green onion, sliced
1 bunch cilantro

Salad Dressing:

2 T fresh lime juice or the store bought if you must
2 T extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. onion powder
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Chop cilantro and green onions then dice tomatoes. Combine beans, tomatoes, green onion, cilantro and mix with dressing, stir gently until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste and put covered in refrigerator for about an hour.

Shake or toss well before eating. Best served chilled!

I made this in a few minutes while my toddler sat on the counter next to me picking out the beans and tomatoes as you can see in the picture below!
