  1. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add parsley, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and onion; toss to coat. Sprinkle sumac over salad; season with salt and pepper.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Sumac is a ground spice, reddish in color, that has a bright, tangy flavor. I've found it in a Middle Eastern market and online.
  • Garlic puree can be substituted for the minced garlic.

I have made this twice now. I keep adding vegetables to it and it just gets better. I enjoy it more the longer it sits - 3-4 hrs
