Strawberry Chopped Salad 1

I recommend using garbanzo beans (I love them in everything!), but feel free to use whatever bean you have on hand. Also, I find that it’s best to keep the dressing simple so that the fresh flavors of the other ingredients can shine through.

2 pints strawberries, washed, de-stemmed, and halved

3 cups (2 15-ounce cans) cooked garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped

1 red onion, diced

1/2 cup basil, chopped

2 T minced fresh mint

Juice of 2 lemons and the zest of 1, or to taste

Sea salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

1 Combine the strawberries, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, red onion, basil, mint, and lemon juice and zest in a bowl.

2 Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Chill for 1 hour before serving to let the flavors bloom.
