Sesame Garbanzo Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Serah B.

When I was pregnant several summers ago, I loved this light, cool salad. It is meant to be a side dish for 4-6, but my husband and I ate it as a main dish for 2. Cook time does not include 15 minutes marinating time.

I halved this recipe for lunch today and we liked it. It was a different way to use cucumbers. I used peanut butter instead of tahini and added salt and pepper. Thanks for posting.
