Packed with flavor, fiber and healthy vitamins - this is a great salad to serve when you have a heavy main dish that needs a lighter compliment.

- 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

- 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- kalamata olive, drained (optional)
- Drain one can of garbanzo beans. Chop all other vegetables and add to beans.

I left out the onion and added celery: delicious! Will defo make again. Super quick and easy, but very tasty!
Greek Garbanzo brean salad is what I would call this. Yumm!
Loved this!! Fresh, healthy, filling, fiber full... update 10/21/07.. I'm changing my stars from 4 to 5. I've made this salad probably 10 times.. and I love it everytime.. if I make it that much.. it's a five star recipe!
