Garbanzo Bean Salad Recipe
You know that you can make delicious recipes from the canned items you carry in your pantry. Last month I showed you my White Bean Tapenade Recipe, and this month I am sharing a family another favorite. My Dad’s wife, Peggy, gave me this recipe one Thanksgiving after my husband wolfed down the double recipe and asked for more. Since then, this Garbanzo Bean salad recipe has been passed on to many who have tasted it at my home, and now I will pass it on to you.

As part of the #CansGetYouCooking Challenge, I am to make a recipe a month involving canned food. This is a great way for me to clean out my pantry, and to stock up anew. Since I live in Florida, we get by hurricanes quite frequently. This usually results in an abundance of canned foods when we don’t get hit. A well-stocked Cantry helps you save time and get a healthy, flavorful and home-cooked meal on the table, more often. It’s homemade made easy. I love canneries these days lock in the freshness and nutrients of the vegetables by canning at the right time. At Publix, you can even get many organic and salt-free varieties.

  1. I would serve it at the next function where the needy and hungry are going to eat at a buffet. Something different than the same old stuff!

  2. My husband has a gathering every August with his childhood friends at our house for the past few years and it has become a tradition… I want to make it then

  3. I would serve this Garbanzo Bean Salad at a picnic or barbeque because it’s very delicious!

  4. I wouldn’t, I hate garbonzo beans (sorry) I make a black bean and corn salad though that is great for potlucks.

  5. We have get togethers with friends every other month so I think this would be perfect for one of those.

  6. I would serve it at our church banquet and family reunion this summer! I love these beans and this recipe is awesome!

  7. With the humidity as high as it’s been lately – I am thinking I may just make it tonight – LOL

  8. I’ve been dating a very nice guy for 4 months as of Saturday and he asked me to move in with him. We found a place already for the 29th, yet his strict Catholic mother has no idea yet. She loves healthy food and all greens. I would serve this at our apartment the first time she comes to visit to show her I care about about her son and his eating good food too!!!

  9. I would serve it during our potluck dinners at the campground. Thanks.

  10. Every Year in the summer I have a get together with the girls I went to school with so many years ago. We have a Potluck and everyone brings a new recipe item that they tried this year. I would make the Garbanzo Bean Salad as I think it would be a hit with us all.

  11. As a side dish to shish kabobs (meat for the hubby, vegan for me). But I would leave the mayo out (I am allergic, besides being vegan) and use Italian dressing instead.

  12. I would serve this at dinner over the weekend when we normally grill out. And most likely will soon- it looks delicious and I want to give it a try!

  13. This would be perfect for lunch, served on a split and toasted English Muffin. Thanks for the recipe.

  14. I would serve this at my fiances 32nd birthday party/ lake picnic with all of our friends and family.. it sounds like a recipe that he would love 🙂 Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

  15. This salad would be great at any of our family BBQs this summer! It’s nice to find something different to bring!

  16. I would definitely fix it at the campground for a picnic or take it to a carry in at church.

  17. i looove garbonzo beans, so i would make this salad and serve as a side for dinner at home. great recipe!

  18. We are having my daughter’s birthday and family get together at the same time on the 27th, this would be perfect

  19. I’ve never had garbanzo beans, so i’d probably serve this at home, by myself to taste it first!

  20. I would serve this Garbanzo Bean salad for my nieces’ birthday next month!
    Thank You for the giveaway

  21. That looks so delicious! I served something similar at our Super Bowl party. I’d try this one out when my friends visit next week from out of town.

  22. I would serve this Garbanzo Bean Salad at our summer backyard BBQ when all my kids bring their families over!

  23. Oh I would love to serve it at one of our family functions. 🙂 We try to get the whole family together a couple times a month, and we all have to bring something! This would be perfect!

  24. i eat garbonzo beans right out of the can or toast them for snacks, also give them to my 3 4 legged girls…i would serve it at picnics or take to an outing….i would substitute low fat mayo, and not sure if i would add the corn, maybe add no salt stringbeans or another bean to add….beans are better than corn b/c of the addtl fiber…

  25. I don’t know if it’s just me, but the pin it entry won’t allow me to pin because there’s a problem with the photo/pin

  26. I’d serve it at home or a cook out. It sounds like a good recipe I’m gonna have to try it myself soon!

  27. I’d serve this recipe at the monthly work potluck party. I’d totally win bonus points with my boss!

  28. I’d serve this scrumptious sidedish at our next outdoor BBQ, hopefully soon, if the weather improves.

  29. I would serve it at my family reunion later this summer. We have approx 36 guests so I’d have to make a larger salad, but everyone would love it and it would be easy to do!

  30. I would serve it at my sisters house! we have lots of dinners over there and I think the family would love it!

  31. Some call them Garbanzo Beans, others say they’re Chick Peas……I eat them on my salad every day and call them delicious!! Make my day

  32. I would serve this (and I plan to!) in 2 weeks at our family reunion! This would be a huge hit!

  33. I think this recipe is a good side dish and would be a good choice for a potluck. It’s something different and variety is the fun of a potluck!

  34. I would serve the Garbanzo Bean Salad at one of our neighborhood cook outs. Sounds delicious!

  35. I would serve it at our next barbecue with friends before we go see the new Wolverine crossing

  36. I hope it’s okay, but I had to cut down the tweet a little bit to make it fit within Twitter’s character limit. I tried to leave the URL and other important key words intact.

  37. I’m sorry, but I don’t think I would serve it. I’m not a fan of garbanzo beans.

  38. I’d serve it anytime, anyplace! I love bean salad! (Though my family objects to what it does to my…digestion, you might say.)

  39. I would serve this at the lakes where we go on the weekends
    at our cookout. I would serve this to my family and friends.

  40. I would serve it at a family cook out or just a fun outing to the beach! Would go great with burgers….mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  41. I would serve this Garbanzo Bean salad recipe to my parents when I have them over for dinner

  42. I’ve never tried garbanzo beans outside of chilli or hummus so this would be interesting. I would take it to a pot luck BBQ 🙂

  43. If I had planned ahead better, I’d serve it tomorrow at our family get-together, but since I didn’t, I’d serve this at the next potluck we have at work.

  44. This sounds wonderful, my family is always getting together to hang out and play games and this would make a great new food for us to try and enjoy! I’ll definitely give this a try at our next get together!

  45. I may have to try making this for my next family BBQ. But even before that, I might have to make it for myself 🙂

  46. I love, love, love garbanzo beans (aka chick peas) so I plan to mix this up and serve it the next time we have a family gathering. If I didn’t have to run to the store for garbanzo beans, shoepeg corn and mayonnaise, I’d probably try to make it tonight.

  47. I’d serve this salad any time right here at home. Lunch on its own, or as a nice side dish to a hamburger. Thanks for the recipe idea!
