Mediterranean Chopped Salad

I made up this recipe combining all the things I happened to be craving at the moment today.   It became lunch and I'm loving it!
Combine coarsely chopped veggies and beans of your choosing.  I have:

Grape tomatoes
Cucumber (unpeeled)
Garbanzo beans (1 can, drained)
1 red onion
A can of olives would be perfect too but I'm out :(.

Then add and mix this dressing:
3 T vinegar
1/4 C olive oil
2 t oregano
1 t honey
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt

Mix and match what you have.  I also threw in some chopped mozzarella cheese so that it and the beans could add the protein to make it a filling lunch.

I'm sure it's better after marinating a few hours, but I ate it right away and it was still yummy.

  1. This looks quite yummy. I rarely fancy salads in the winter but this would definitely be one for me in the Summer. Looks very refreshing.
