Garbanzo Bean Salad

I threw this together yesterday, put it in mason jars, and am letting it sit in the refrigerator for flavor!  Oh how I love Garbanzo Beans and pickled vegetables! 
Very easy ingredients with no measurements to your liking~ 
1/2 package of garbanzo beans cooked till tender 
one can of sliced olives, drained 
Cilantro leaves chopped up
Cherry tomatoes (they are in there~ they must be shy!)
chopped onion 
Toss with your favorite Italian Dressing or Olive Oil Dressing
I was going to add some corn but forgot!  There's always next time!

If you try this (even a variation) I'd love to know how you like it!

  1. Your salad sounds so tasty. I am having one tonight, but it is from The Olive Garden. Love their salads and bread sticks.

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment LV!

  3. You know I am drooling over the milk glass..and the gingham too..LOL

  4. Well, I just happen to have all these ingredients on hand. Guess what I am making this weekend!

  5. I too love garbanzo beans and use them in soups and salads!

  6. Yummy, yummy, yummy! Thank you for the inspiration!!!

  7. I use chickpeas just about every day either in soups or salads. They are even good just heated up then topped with fresh tomatoes, chopped parsley, onions and a drizzle of very good olive oil. Yum! Best wishes, Tammy

    1. That sounds so delish Tammy!!! I've got to try that!

  8. That looks delicious and being vegetarian I will have to try making it. Love chickpeas and any kind of beans - adding good olive oil is the key I'm sure.

    Thanks for sharing -

    1. Thank you Mary! Beans and legumes are a must for lots of protein!

  9. I love, love garbanzo beans and whenever I'm in our Natural Foods Store, I buy a little to-go dish of them. This looks like a great recipe, though I would have to leave out the cilantro (I'm one of those people who don't like it!) Thanks so much for sharing it with us and joining in this week.


  10. i have just put the garbonzos in to soak. this sounds scrumptious!

  11. OOh I love anything with chick peas and garbanzos.
    So easy and wonderful to have on idea for an easy meal.
    Cheesey corn chips with scoops of this would be yummy!!
