Garbonzo Bean Salad

by Brian Augsburger

This garbanzo bean salad is one of my favorite summertime dishes. It’s easy to prepare and great for BBQ’s & potlucks. The addition of fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden or your local farmer’s market give it that extra punch of fresh flavor. Always a crowd pleaser, enjoy!

2 Cans Garbonzo Beans (or Cannellini)
2 Tomatoes diced
3-5 Cloves Garlic Diced
1/4 Cuip Olive Oil
Bunch of Basil Chopped
Lemon Juice
Salt, Pepper, Paprika


Fry diced garlic in olive oil for a few minutes until very lightly browned. Set aside to let oil & garlic cool. Mix diced tomatoes, beans and basil in a large bowl. Yellow heirloom or roma tomatoes are best with this dish but any will do. Pour cooled olive oil and garlic over everything in the bowl. Mix. Add fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle paprika over salad.
