This salad was so delicious! Josh even loved it, and his favorite food in the world is cheeseburgers and loaded baked potatoes! Speaking of cheeseburgers... we ate this salad as a side dish. Wanna know what it was next to on our dinner plates? Cheesy Hashbrown Hamburger Helper! Yeah, we know how to do it up right in the 757! Lol ;) Anyway, I made a double batch of the salad, and between Josh and I it was gone in 2 days! It's safe to say this recipe is going to become a staple in the Baker household!
Green Garbanzo Salad (from Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's)
2 cups frozen Green Garbanzos or frozen shelled edamame
2 tsp salt to flavor boiling water
1/2 cup Perlini Super Tiny Fresh Mozzarella balls
1/4 cup diced red onion (I will reduce this next time, as it was more than enough for a DOUBLE batch.)
1/2 tsp minced garlic or jarred Crushed Garlic
1/4 cup Tuscan Italian Dressing (We barely used this much in a double batch. I'd say just add it to taste.)
Fresh basil, for garnish
1. Cook garbanzo beans in salted water. Drain.
2. Combine all vegetables in a large bowl. Pour vinaigrette over salad, add mozzarella balls, and toss gently.
3. Garnish with chopped fresh basil.
