My Favorite Vegetable Salad: Chickpeas & Cukes

* 2 cucumbers, peeled & diced
* 1-2 cups of grape tomatoes
* 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
* 1/2 red onion, diced
* 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
* 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
* 6 TBS lemon juice
* 1/2 tsp garlic salt
* 1/2-1 tsp black pepper

- Layer the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, onion, and feta cheese.
- Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic salt, and pepper.
- Pour over the layered vegetables and cheese.
- Cover and refrigerate 4 hours until ready to serve.
- Prior to serving, mix well to combine all ingredients.
Hint: No grape tomatoes? Substitute diced fresh tomatoes instead. Not a fan of feta cheese? How about mozzarella cubes instead? I like to eat this salad with wheat crackers or bagel chips. Definitely a kitchen favorite in my house - enjoy!!
