Garbanzo Bean Salad

This is my absolute favorite salad right now. I’m obsessed! Just a few items needed for this tasty, and healthy, dish. I really didn’t care much for garbanzos in the past, but I’ve come to really enjoy this little bean. When my sisters and I ate at Claim Jumper for lunch recently, I noticed the salad bar had garbanzo beans soaking in a bath of Italian dressing with spices and herbs looking all tasty. Well, some beans happened to find their way onto my plate, and very soon after found their way into my foodie heart!

I came up with my own version of a garbanzo bean salad. It’s really simple to throw together. Here’s what you need…

Two cans of garbanzo beans
One medium cucumber or two small ones
One tomato
Feta crumbles
Jar of artichoke hearts
Your favorite Italian dressing
(Optional: Add some cut up salami)


Rinse the garbanzo beans, and place into a medium-sized tupperware.

Dice up the cucumbers, tomato and artichoke hearts. Place the diced veggies into the tupperware with the beans. Mix the salad together.


Scoop some of the salad into a bowl, add dressing and feta crumbles…


Trust me, this tastes exactly how it looks, cool and refreshing, a great salad to serve this summer!

  2. Yum, Marie! I’m with you on Garbanzo beans, never really cared for them until trying them on a salad recently. I literally lol’d at your ” Well, some beans happened to find their way onto my plate, and very soon after found their way into my foodie heart!” comment, lol! You crack me up. You’re so talented, I always look forward to getting your recipes in my email! šŸ™‚

    • Sheena, that is so, so sweet of you to say! Thank you šŸ™‚ Yeah, I tend to have a little too much fun with these posts. I get too into the food descriptions, but it’s fun, and that’s all that matters!

      I want to have a MarSheSha get-together one of these days and blog about it. We’ll make dinner, maybe have a couple cocktails, it’ll be fun! MarSheSha lives! Jeremy said, “What’s MarSheSha?” I said, “How much time do you have?” Lol! I gave him the short version, which was, “It’s the first three letters of our names creating one name,” lol!
