||Garbanzo Bean Salad
1¾ cup Garbanzo beans (canned is good)
1 small head Romaine Lettuce
3 stalks Celery, diced
1 Tomato, deseeded and diced
⅔ cup Scallion, minced
3 cloves Garlic, pressed
3 tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
3 tbsp fresh Parsley, chopped
2½ tbsp fresh Mint, chopped
A dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
¼ cup Feta cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Remove and discard the outer layers of the romaine lettuce head and
chop the remainder. Drain and rinse the beans if they’re the canned
variety, and prepare the remaining ingredients.
Then take a large salad bowl and leaving aside the chopped romaine
lettuce and the feta cheese, toss the other ingredients together in the
bowl. Add the salt, pepper and the olive oil to taste.
To serve, lay the chopped romaine lettuce on your dish, scoop the
garbanzo bean salad over the chopped romaine, and sprinkle on top
with the feta cheese.
The cheese is optional. If you don’t like cheese, the salad won’t suffer for
it not being there.
