Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I find a dressing of just oil lemon juice a little bland so I added some balsamic vinegar. Very tasty. I like the combination of pasta and veggies.

Ugh, this website never gives me a choice of stars! I would rate this 4 stars.

The garbanzo salad looks so good. I plan to make this tomorrow. Thank you for all the great recipes, everyone I have tried have turned out absolutely delicious and are easy to prepare. I always look forward to see what you have in my email. Shirley
