Refreshing Garbanzo Bean Salad

This salad is perfect for a hot summer day. It combines cool cucumbers, nutrient-rich garbanzo beans and other fabulous stuff! It's also super-easy and quick. For extra protein, you could easily add grilled chicken, tuna or even shrimp to this recipe.

Refreshing Garbanzo Bean Salad

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup chopped cucumbers (I used Persian cucumbers)
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup green olives, roughly chopped (you could use black too)
Small handful of Italian parsley, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Fresh ground black pepper
Pinch of sea salt

Combine beans, cucumbers, red onion, olives, parsley and feta in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Pour wet ingredients over chopped ingredients and mix well. Enjoy!
