    cookCol's Note:

    At this time of year I start to get tired of the same old pasta and potato salads. I found this recipe in the Cooking Light 2002 Annual cookbook. It didn't take long to make, should be made ahead and was a refreshing change.

      I make this recipe at least once every summer. I love it! It's light and fresh plus it's got protein with the garbanzo beans. Very popular at potlucks.

      I made this recipe and got mixed reviews. I really liked it a lot personally so I'm going with my rating! Very bright tastes make for a really flavorful salad. I left out the peas due to my taste preference but made the recipe as stated otherwise. I love how healthy this dish is and it is refreshing on a hot day.
