Garbanzo Bean Sweet Pepper Salad

Garbanzo Bean Sweet Pepper Salad

Garbanzo Bean Sweet Pepper Salad is one of my FAVORITE salads to make ahead and have on hand for packed lunches. It is healthy, low-calorie, easy to make, and keeps well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

With a tangy balsamic dressing, Garbanzo Bean Sweet Pepper Salad it’s always a hit on picnics and at potlucks. SO easy, and no cooking required!

NOTE: You don’t really have to have four difference colors of sweet bell pepper, but it looks prettiest this way. Just use whatever bell peppers you have available – it’ll still be yummy!
