Garbanzo Bean Salad with Lemon Dressing



lemonsThis delicious summer salad can be served anytime of the year. My kids think these legumes are fun to eat and they love the nutty flavor. Garbanzo beans are a great source of protein and both soluble and insoluble fiber. You can purchase garbanzo beans (chickpeas) in cans or dried.

For the Salad:
2 13 oz. cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 medium sized tomatoes, diced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 green pepper, diced
4 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

For the Dressing:
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare and combine all of the salad ingredients in a large bowl.

Combine the dressing ingredients in a container with a lid and shake thoroughly. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad and refrigerate for 1 hour, allowing the flavors to combine well.
