Fresh and Light Garbanzo Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Carianne

Great for light lunch or to bring to potluck for a low-fat alternative (easily doubles). 2 WW points, from the Secrets of Fat Free Cooking cookbook. Also, olive oil can be omitted to lower fat even more.

I didn't have all the ingredients for this salad, but LOVED what I did have and could use. I really like the Vinegar dressing and my husband liked it too and he's not a big fan of vinegars. Thanks for the recipe, I'm definitely keeping this to have again!
