Garbanzo Bean Cucumber Salad

I love making salads and this is one of my favorites. The fresh combination of tomatoes, cucumbers and lime juice for a dressing is absolutely amazing! This salad is refreshing and I also love to use the leftover salad in a sanwich/pita for lunch the next day. The very simple dressing of salt, olive oil and lime enhance all the fresh flavors to come together. 

1 8oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 Medium red onion, chopped
2 Medium tomatoes
1 Cucumber, chopped
1 Cup green onions
2 Teaspoons lime juice
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon olive oil

This simple salad is easy yet powerfully flavorful.  My only tip on creation here is to go easy on the dressing by dressing the salad bowl instead of the salad itself.  By adding the olive oil and lime juice to the bowl then mixing everything together your salad will stay crisp and evenly dressed.  If you want some more of that great lime flavor top the sald with more lime before it's served.

Don't forget to upload this beautiful creation onto our Facebook page! I look forward to seeing my recipes on your dining tables.
