Is Summer Here??? A Fresh Salad

Its suppose to be summer today....hmmmmm but in summer a wonderful crisp and refreshing salad is a great thing to have...when I was younger my mom always had Gargonzo Beans around but she called them "Chi Chi Beans" I always popped them into my mouth as a snack..here is a salad to treat yourself too...


1 can (8 – 10oz) "chi-chi" beans[garbonzo]
1 cup bean Sprouts

1 small onion diced

1 small tomato diced

1/2 tbsp lime or lemon juice

A few sprigs of fresh cilantro chopped
Salt as per taste


Mix all the ingredients together except cilantro and cover it with a plastic wrap and refrigerate it in the morning if you would like to eat it in the evening. The lime juice tends to tenderize the sprout and makes it a little soft and blend more well into the salad. Serve chilled by garnishing with cilantro. You will be so glad you tried this recipe which is as simple as this yet so fulfilling and delicious.

Oh, this sounds good! I've always bought my garbonzo beans for making homemade hummus, but I'd love to try this salad! I looks delicious!
