Every recipe from Half Baked Harvest is amazing. I recommend checking out this website for delicious, healthy recipes. Recently, a friend posted a picture of a salad that she made on Instagram. My mouth was instantly watering. Lately, I have been sick of recipes with meat. I am so used to making sure I have meat as a protein when making dinner. There are many ways to incorporate a protein within a meal without using meat; in this case, it is garbanzo beans.

This salad is easy to put together, and it is so colorful and healthy. If I were you, I would make double the recipe because you will have seconds and thirds, enjoy!
