Writing my first review because this is a family staple now. The entire crowd of picky-eaters in my house all love this dish. It's easy, it's healthy and we love it!
A very heart healthy dish. I used a can of garbanzo beans that had been drained and washed and I also omitted the salami. The olives were Kalamata and the feta was regular. This was delicious served with Microwave Salmon Fillets. Made for the Diabetic Forum *Heart Healthy Tag*
I just finished making this recipe and I already love it! I omitted the salami, however and it still tasted delicious!
