Greek salads are always a go-to for me, whether I’m whipping up a quick bite at home or am ordering at a restaurant. When I came across this recipe , I knew I had to try it. The classic ingredients of a greek salad (tomato, cucumber, onion and feta) get a makeover with broccoli, chickpeas and kale. This easy-to-make salad is great for entertaining or for taking to work for lunch.
> 1 can garbanzo beans
> 1 cucumber, chopped
> 1 head broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
> 1 cup tomatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
> 1 cup kale, sliced
> 1/2 cup onion, chopped
> 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
> goat cheese (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and toss in balsamic vinegar. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
To liven it up, add a soft cheese (I added crumbled goat cheese) or quinoa.
Makes 4 servings.
