    Cookgirl's Note:

    Courtesy of my wonderful niece The Next Jeneration. She said the inspiration for this recipe is from a local deli in her neighborhood. All amounts given for the ingredients are estimated. Although I dislike thyme, it didn't bother me at all in this recipe. Perhaps I'm warming up to it...? Delicious Mediterranean/French/Greek/Middle Eastern flavors!

    Units: US | Metric



    • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • lemon juice (juice of 1/2 lemon, approximately)
    • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (dark)
    • 2 teaspoons honey (use agave or other suitable sweetener for the vegan version) or 2 teaspoons Agave (use agave or other suitable sweetener for the vegan version)


    1. 1
      Place drained garbanzo beans in a non-reactive salad bowl. Now add the remaning salad ingredients to the bowl.
    2. 2
      Whisk together the dressing and pour over the bean mixture. Stir gently.
    3. 3
      Cover and refrigerate several hours for best flavor. Serve at *room temperature*. The flavor of the salad we discovered is best the next day after it has marinated overnight.
    4. 4
      Garnish with freshly parsley and/or lemon slices if desired. I think the salad would taste delicious served over a bed of arugula or baby spinach.
    5. 5
      Yield is estimated.

      I made half a batch, which was perfect as a side dish for three people. Great flavor, and so simple to throw together. For ZWT9

      This is amazingly delicious. The combination of the flavors is sooo good -- the sweet/sour syrupy balsamic along with the tartness of the lemon and of course the honey make a wonderful dressing. I have fallen in love with dates as of late and I love the addition of them in this salad. This salad can only get better over time. Adding to my Best of 2013 Cookbook. Made for NA/ME, September, 2013.
