Organic Garbanzo Beans Salad

I bought 2 cans of Organic Garbanzo Beans from Trader Joes months ago ,still sitting on the shelve..Some people called Garbanzo beans as chickpeas. I wonder what to do with this bean...It's been awhile I make any salad with beans..I also store plenty of Goya can beans in my pantry.Beans are terrific food to incorporate into your regular diet because they help lower cholesterol, decrease heart attack risk, and regulates blood sugars. They're also full of vitamins and minerals, and low in calories.Nothing will goes wrong when you combine sweet corn,Garbanzo beans and pink beans in your salad!!






Ingredients:
1 can pink beans,removed liquid and washed with cold water
1 can Garbanzo beans or chickpeas,removed liquid
1 can sweet corn,removed liquid
1 small head iceberg lettuce,cut and washed
1 large tomato,washed and sliced
1 large onion,peeled and sliced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp ground white or black pepper powder
2 tbsp fine salt
olive oil
wedges lemon
Method:
1: Cut and wash all the vegetables ,drained.Open beans in can and corn,wash with cold water,drained.
2:Combine all the ingredients in a large deep bowl.Toss all the ingredients well.
Combine the seasoning in a bowl.Check the seasoning.I prefer to toss the seasoning in individual salad portion.You can toss in the seasoning in the salad.Serve cold.

I am a fan of beans because they are low in fat and fill me up easily. I like the use of apple cider vinegar in this-will add good tang to it without the fat!

Ha! I just bought a can of Goya chickpeas and have been thinking of how to serve/cook it. Still in my thinking stage as we don't eat salad at home, so salad is out.

Hi Beachlovers,

You could try to make Hummus with chickpeas. The is a varieties of recipes available on the web, like adding little spicyness to it. I use my hummus on my roasted toast instead of peanut butter in the morning.
