Garbanzo Bean and Pepper Salad

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"I made up this recipe for a cool summer dish to take to a picnic. I just threw together things I had on hand and it became a hit! You may substitute your favorite type of bean for the garbanzos. Any firm bean will do. You may omit the jalapeno altogether. This salad will work as a main course and is very satisfying and colorful. The different tastes and textures are very pleasing. Serve cold."

Winged it on this - I just added and tossed to my liking, until it looked right to me. Left out the jalapeno because I didn't have any and added artichokes because I did. I did use the mix of ...

We loved the red pepper and garbanzo beans and added celery and some blanched green and wax beans for added umph! A very nice salad to toss together on a warm summer day.

This is a great salad. I had a salad like this in a great restaurant around my area, but didn't know what all the ingredients were. Now I make this all the time (I think my kids are getting tir...

This was a super easy salad to make and my husband loved it even though he isn't fond of garbanzo beans. He loved the lemon dressing to it. I didn't add jalapeño to it because I have little kids...

I first had this on a plane, of all places! It was made with cilantro instead of parsley. I like both. YUMMY! My husband likes it because it tastes like hummus before it hits the food processor.
