Imagine You’re In Tuscany Enjoying This Salad

TUSCAN BEAN SALAD

Ingredients

2 Cups Cooked, Drained Garbanzo Beans
2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes.  Rinsed and Cut In Half
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Fresh Minced Oregano (or 1 Teaspoon Dried)

½ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Alfalfa Sprouts or Romaine Lettuce

Instructions
In a large salad bowl, combine beans and tomatoes.

In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, oregano,
pepper, and Italian seasoning.

Beat the ingredients until the oil and vinegar no longer separate, and the mixture is well-blended and thick.

Pour the dressing over the beans and tomatoes, and
mix gently to coat.
