Garbanzo Bean Salad With Tzatziki Dressing

mmay 036 copyTrust me I did not do this one on purpose because it’s healthy it just sounded really good to me. The bonus is – it is healthy and fast! I am not even the cook in the house so not sure why I am so inspired to be in the kitchen (it must be this blog).  I got the recipe from a cook book called Salads by Elena Balashova.

Garbanzo Bean Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 – 14 oz cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
  • 2 firm, ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into this strips

Tzatziki Dressing Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • ½ cup of low-fat yogurt (I use Greek Yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (I use our garlic press)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

1. To prepare the salad, combine the garbanzo beans, tomatoes, and bell peppers in a bowl.

2. To prepare the tzatziki dressing, whisk the oil, vinegar, yogurt, mustard, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently.

Serves 6, about 168 calories per serving.  Next time I might add red onion.  This is a great lunch salad or side dish and it lasts a few days in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!
