Black Bean and Garbanzo Salad

"This is a corruption of another salad that has 4 varieties of beans in it. When I don't want to make enough for a crowd, I use this version. It's pretty healthy and is full of good carbs (especially if you skip the corn)."

    We loved this simple, yet tasty salad. The fact that it is healthy too, is an added bonus. When I started to make this, I realized I didn't have garbanzo beans, so I used cannellini beans instead. Also, I added: some sugar to cut the tart of the lime juice, cumin, black pepper, and additional salt. It was even better the next day. Thank you for sharing! **Made for 2017 Football Pool**

    Since we were going to a cider pressing party to today, I doubled the recipe and then added considerably more hot sauce than called for (but it was just Tabasco sauce). Everyone loved it! Thanks posting; will definitely make it again.

    Delicious!!! I loved the crunch of all the veggies and the colorfulness of the salad. I left out the salt and cilantro (didn't have any). I also didn't add the hot pepper sauce because it was spicy enough with the salsa. YUM! Made for PAC Spring 2011.

    I love the flavor of this dish! I'm always looking for a new chickpea recipe & this was all stuff I had on hand. Oh, except I had to sub green pepper for the red. Other than that, made as directed. I did go easy on the salt, just sprinkled & tasted til it was good. I loved the contrast of crunchy veggies to soft, but firm, beans. I'll be making this again for sure! Thanks for sharing your creation, Linky!
