Garbanzo Bean Avocado Salad


Lately, I've been really into making summer salads to complement our simple summer dinners (which seem to be grilled fish half the time). A couple weeks ago, I used black beans to make a hearty side salad and this week I'm using garbanzo beans. The avocado and nectarine add so much depth to this dish and, simply put, you just can't beat how easily this comes together.

Garbanzo Bean Avocado Salad
Yield: about 3 hearty servings
Total Time: about 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

Dash oregano
Salt and pepper

I have never used garbanzo beans but love beans and pulses - they use them a lot here in Cyprus. Now I just need to find out what they are called in Greek! :)

@Mimi, they may be referred to as "chick peas"?
