Garbanzo Salad with Herbed Yogurt Dressing
Serves: 6 to 8
The density of garbanzos is pleasant whether they’re served hot, cold or at room temperature. This easy recipe is a high-protein substitute for potato salad.

If you're going to cook garbanzos from scratch, try the smaller, nuttier-tasting Pedrosillano bean from our bulk department. It's a nice counterpoint to the tangy dressing.
