My husband Peter just came in from the garden with yet another day’s bounty of tomatoes and cucumbers from our garden. “Thanks, honey. We certainly need more of those!” I say as he adds them to the pile already taking up half our kitchen counter space.
Then I remembered that someone shared a recipe with one of my groups this week – one that is perfect for shrinking down the pile a bit. Not really a recipe actually . . .
Just slice up some cucumber, chop some bell pepper and purple onion, and halve several cherry or grape tomatoes. Put them in a bowl, add a drained can of garbanzo beans, and pour a little balsamic vinaigrette over the top. Mix. Done!
It’s pretty too.
