Mediterranean Garbanzo Salad

Mediterranean Garbanzo Salad

Serves 1

This quick and easy meal is a testament to the satisfaction of a good main course salad and is just one example of how to include healthy, protein-packed beans in a warm-weather menu. It's simple to double this recipe for two, or increase further to serve even more. Maybe it will become the summer potluck dish you're famous for! Serve with pita chips or warm pita bread on the side.

  • 5 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small zucchini or yellow squash, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon prepared balsamic vinaigrette or Italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
