Garbanzo bean salad has all the fixings of hummus but with less work.
I've been in love with healthy hummus dishes for some time now and I'm so happy to share this beauty with you today.
What is this?
We love summer, no matter what season we are in. Here in the midwest, the summers can be short and the winters long and hard.
What's in it
- Garbanzo Beans
- Tahini Paste
- Lemon Zest
- Salt & Pepper
- Fresh Greens
Making healthier and lighter food choices help us to remember warmer days of bright sunshine, even when there is nearly a foot of snow on the ground in mid-April.
This is our reality in northeast Wisconsin, but it's not all bad.
