Summer Garbanzo Bean Salad & Giveaway

Summer Garbanzo Bean Salad

You would think that living in a big city like Tampa, we would have large Farmers Markets and cute little fruit and veggie stands.
Nope, not so much.
Sure every once in a while they will have a Farmers Market and an art show, but it’s usually in the cooler months, because no one really wants to go out and sweat to death for a fun activity.
So usually the closest we get is the boring ol’ supermarket.

I used to love going to the supermarket, but I am kinda over it lately. Maybe it is because everything is sooooooooooooo expensive. I’ll pick up some fresh green beans that cost a bunch, toss them in the fridge and then forget they are there and end up throwing them away. So annoying and so wasteful.
What I have been doing lately is stocking up on some canned veggie staples.
Take this salad for instance.
I didn’t even have to make a special trip to the store to make it.
I even had the parsley, that in a few days would have been forgotten and tossed away.
Summer Garbanzo Bean Salad

This is such a great lil’ summer salad, using canned veggies.
I know some people might have a thing with canned, but I swear, they don’t have the canned flavor that I remember as a child.

Summer Garbanzo Bean Salad

To bring out the flavors of the veggies, I rinsed them and tossed them with some EVOO, salt and pepper and gave them a roast in a nice toasty oven.

This was such a hit at the party I brought it to.

The flavors are fresh and light. It is super healthy and a cinch to put together.

Thank you to Libby’s for inspiring me to bring canned fruits and vegetables back into my kitchen. Be sure to show them some love and visit their website
