Chick Pea and Beet Salad

1 Can Garbanzo Beans (Chick Peas)

1 Can Beets (cut into slices)

1/4 Cup thinly sliced onion

Combine all of the above, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle with Olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar.  This salad is perfect as a side to any BBQ, or can be enjoyed alone as a very low-calorie snack!!

Wow!  What a “Great Snack”.  That’s what my husband said after he ate this salad.  To be perfectly honest with you,  I put this together because I didn’t know what else to make for a “midnight snack”,  it just sounded like it would go together…and let me tell you it really does taste great!  Go ahead and try it and let me know what you think!

SPROUTS are a great way of adding crunch and spice to your salads or sandwiches!!  Radish sprouts add a pepper flavor, alfalfa sprouts taste like citrus,  while sunflower sprouts add a nutty flavor.. 

I highly recommend this recipe!!
