Today was a miserable hot day and on top of that I have strep throat, yikes. I can’t eat hot food but cold tastes good. With that I made this tomato and garbanzo bean salad from tomatoes and basil from our garden.
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 avocado, diced
1/2 fresh basil leafs, chopped
1/2 cup garbanzo beans
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 cup good quality balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix everything in a bowl and toss carefully with dressing. Enjoy with a slice of multigrain bread for a complete meal and protein.
