Summer Salad

Have I mentioned I LOVE Summer? This salad takes me right back to a Summer day around the age of 8 at my Grammy's house. Meeting Papa on the corner from his "vanpool" from the city and walking back to the house to have dinner right at 5:30 then playing outside until the sun went down. We always made a salad to go with dinner, but in the Summer to use up those tasty backyard tomatoes they would be the focus of many a salads.

Tomatoes of any variety, red onion, and my favorite a can or garbanzo beans. My Gram always used to drizzle EVOO on it, but I opted out of that and just stuck with red wine vinegar and salt and pepper. So tasty, so satisfying, easy, and a great salad to bring to a BBQ. Enjoy!

Summertime Garbanzo Salad
4 tomatoes of ANY variety diced
1/2 red onion slivered
1 can of garbanzo beans
3 tbs of red wine vinegar
Generous sprinkle of salt and pepper
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (if you have the calories to spare, but great without)
