This is a refreshing and delicious salad. It's healthy and filling, so a good salad to serve with soup or another lighter dish. It's super quick if you use canned garbanzo beans, or save money by using dried chickpeas. This is a great side dish for when you are grilling.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine beans, tomatoes, feta and mint.
  2. In a screw top jar, or other sealable container, combine vinegar, olive oil, 1 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Shake to combine. Pour over salad mixture and set aside.
  3. Grill pita bread on a grill over medium until warm and toasted. Or broil briefly on each side (no more than 1 minutes per side or it will burn). Transfer to a cutting board and cut into wedges.
  4. Serve salad with warm pita wedges for dipping.

    This was a delicious salad. I was planning to go for a run before dinner, but one taste of this salad piled on top of a wedge of warm pita bread and I was in for half a bowl before I could stop myself. This has flavors that make you dream you are on the coast in Greece or Turkey. Give it a try before summer is over!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

          That looks great. Another alternative could be to use mozzarella cheese instead of feta and Italian bread...
