Garbanzo Bean Salad with Tomato, Avocado, Blue Cheese and Balsamic

Author Notes

At a typical dinnertime my husband and I have salad, and more than once he has looked over and seen me dumping garbanzo beans onto mine resulting in a running joke that goes something like: "Do you want any salad with those garbanzo beans?" In an act of defiant sarcasm I set out a few months ago to make a salad that was literally made (almost) entirely of garbanzos and it actually turned out to be a favorite in our home. It's now my go-to work day dream lunch since it is super easy, simple and filling. —Anna Hultin
