Mediterranean-Style Garbanzo Bean Salad

While my family enjoyed some spicy beef tacos, I chose a healthier option without sacrificing flavor. This Mediterranean-style salad with garbanzo beans provides a light, fresh protein source.

Make this salad at least 4 hours ahead of time so that the flavors have time to blend.

Mediterranean-Style Garbanzo Bean Salad

  • 1 16-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and quartered
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a plastic, glass, or ceramic bowl. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

I served mine as a meal over a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce. It will serve as an excellent accompaniment to grilled chicken.
