There is nothing I love more than a nice, fresh, summer salad. My neighbor originally gave me the recipe that I tweaked a bit. It’s quickly becoming our early summer side dish staple (after all we are in Florida, it most definitely feels like summer here already.)  After a long weekend of Mick working, Monday afternoon; I decided to make some fresh squeezed lemonade, set up the kiddie pool and let the kids go crazy for a few hours. Mighty M headed to church with our neighbor (which meant an afternoon of not hearing about One Direction for a few hours) I took advantage of the nice weather with the smaller kiddos. This salad seriously takes only 5 minutes to prep and serve.

Garbanzo Bean Summer Salad

Garbanzo Summer Salad:

  • 2 Cans of Garbanzo Beans
  • 1 Container of Feta Cheese (I use the Athenos Feta Cheese brand, Garlic & Herb.)
  • 1 Sliced of red onion
  • 1 Small Tomato
  • 2 Large Avocados
  • 1 Half Can of Artichokes diced
  • Pinch of Salt & Pepper
  • Pinch of Fresh Garlic

Place everything in a large bowl, stir and mush just a tad, you still want a pretty chucky salad. _DSC0939 The possibilities are endless with this salad, you can add black olives, cucumbers, Italian dressing, lemon juice pretty much what ever you have on hand. The Garbanzo beans make a pretty protein packed summer salad for you or your summer BBQ’s, I’ll add my kids love it, they have no idea that its actually a pretty healthy! I paired ours with some brats on buns, onions, mushrooms, and peppers, with some Lay’s potato chips. Photos from our pool day: (just for the cute factor)
