“This is an easy, healthy salad that is a great side dish to BBQ chicken, beef or fish! It can also be easily adapted to a Tex-Mex style by changing the lemon to lime, parsley to cilantro and adding ground cumin and/or chili powder! Be sure to add the lemon zest (or lime zest) as this really adds a ZING to the salad!” - by sourdough girl
Original recipe yields 4 servings

"This is not a review... it's my recipe and it's supposed to say that the beans should be drained and RINSED. Also, I specified that any combination of beans would work, but contrasting colors make th..." See moree best presentation! But, you know, I think it's a 5* recipe, so I'm going to give it 5*s just to get you guys started! Enjoy! p.s. to "likkel"... why would people who don't like cold bean salads even try this recipe? that's like saying vegetarians won't like a beefsteak recipe! And WHY would you feed it to your husband, knowing he doesn't like garbanzo beans??"
"This was so good Cathy! I used garbonzos and pintos in this recipe and added some chopped cucs and black olives. This is a very refreshing salad and went so nicely with our spicey pork tenderloin. Tha..." See morenks so much!"
"I thought this was pretty good. My husband wouldn't eat it. I made him try it and he first picked out the garbanzos since he doesn't like them. People who don't like cold bean salads won't like it. ..." See more I used Lime instead of lemon; and red beans in stead of kidnet beans. I did half with fresh cilantro and half with fresh parsley and I liked the cilantro better (but I love cilantro); the parsley batch had a nice fresh flavor. I tried adding some (thawed) frozen corn and thougth that was good. I added some more chopped red onion since that gave it nice flavor and crunch and a bit more tomato was good."
