Healthy Recipe: Garbanzo, Feta, and Tomato Salad

A Weight Lifted Blog - Copyright © 2004-2008, Green Mountain at Fox Run

Makes 3-4 servings

Plentiful year-round, tomatoes add summer freshness to this light but hearty meal that features tasty and healthy eating ingredients to keep us well-fed in more ways than one. It’s a favorite healthy recipe from Green Mountain at Fox Run, even among participants who swear they don’t like beans!

1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained (about 1½ cups)
¾ cup diced fresh tomatoes (or grape or cherry tomatoes, halved)
¼ cup finely chopped green onions
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1 teaspoon thyme leaves (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red or white wine vinegar

In a medium bowl, place garbanzos, tomatoes, onions, feta, parsley and thyme. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and pour mixture over salad, tossing gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Serve.

For variety, add other herbs such as oregano or basil, and/or pitted black olives.
