Garbanzo Bean and Kale Salad

Put Together This Delicious and Healthful Salad in Just a Few Minutes
In just a few minutes, you can slice up some raw kale, open a can of garbanzos, chop up some vitamin C packed red bell pepper and red onion and mix up a quick lemon, turmeric and oil dressing.
The added bonus is the spice turmeric which reduces inflammation and has been used for rheumatoid arthritis, and has been linked to the prevention of Alzheimer’s and the ability to fight a number of cancers.

This is a super healthy, oh-so-yummy salad.

Serves 4

  • 1 Tbs. freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbs. extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground Turmeric
  • dash Cayenne pepper
  • 1 -1/2 c. Kale, thinly sliced
  • One 15 oz can organic Garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbs. red Onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 c. red Bell Pepper, diced

Place the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, turmeric and cayenne pepper in a medium-sized bowl and mix well.

Add sliced kale to the salad dressing and massage the dressing into the kale with your hands. (Your hands may turn a little yellow!  Just wash with soap).

Add garbanzo beans, red onion and red bell pepper and mix well.

Serve or refrigerate until serving. This makes a great “make ahead” salad since none of the ingredients get soggy.

~ Yum!
