Ensalada de Garbanzos (Garbanzo Bean Salad)

Garbanzo Bean Salad

  "A great tasting salad with garbanzo beans and fresh lime."
Serving size: 6


1 green pepper diced and blanched
1 red bell pepper diced and blanched
1 cup sweet yellow onion, diced
2 (15-ounce) cans garbanzo beans
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Core and seed the green and red pepper. 
Place the peppers in a small bowl with a little water, cover with plastic wrap and blanch in a microwave on high for approximately 90 seconds. 
Let the peppers cool. Dice the peppers when they are cool enough to handle.

Combine the peppers, onion, and garbanzo beans in a non-metallic bowl. Use a blender to combine the lime juice, olive oil, cumin, salt, pepper, and garlic. 
Pour the dressing over the garbanzo bean mixture, cover and refrigerate for one hour or more to let the flavors absorb into the beans.
