Lima Bean & Chickpea Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef JenniB

I needed something unique to take to a cookout and wanted to keep it fresh and vegetarian. This is an original recipe (aka I just made it up :) ) But it turned out delish! This would be great as a lunch, side dish or snack - best served cold or room temperature. Enjoy!

Tasty and easy, we ate this as both a side to veggie burgers and for lunches. It kept well for a few days in the fridge. Only changes I made was to reduce the fat- used fat free feta and no oil. We loved the fresh herbs and garlic- yumm. Would probably use a red/purple onion next time. Thanks for posting this recipe!
