Happy Memorial Day! If you’re heading out to a picnic or barbecue, whip up this salad to take along. The bright flavors from lemon juice and red wine vinegar pair beautifully with salty Greek olives and feta cheese. This dish is a great alternative to antipasto salad, containing similar flavors with the advantage of using nutritious garbanzo beans in place of pasta. If you’re short on time, canned garbanzo beans will work fine in this recipe. Pair this with grilled eggplant and toasted pitas for an easy dinner spread.
