Garbanzo Bean Mexican Salad

Prep Time: 5-10 Minutes

Garbanzos are very versatile. There are many things you can do with them even though they are mostly used for making hummus.  And who doesn't love hummus? I certainly do! But lately I have been enjoying my garbanzo salad. I am always searching for new dishes to serve.  I love how easy and simple this salad is to make. It is a filling dish and very convenient for those days when you want to put something together in no time.  This salad is the perfect dish for when you are hosting a party or just having a few friends over. Not only can it be eaten as a taco salad but also as chips and dip. Even though it is a simple dish, it looks so elegant and colorful! And the smell of cilantro and lime together it's something I cant get enough of! This salad is great any time of the year.  You can always add or change ingredients according to your liking. Here is what you will need:


* 2 cans of garbanzos

* 2 cans of black beans

* 2 cans of sweet corn

* 3 Tomatoes

* 1 large red onion

* 2 cloves of garlic

* A bunch of cilantro

* 4 tbsps of olive oil

* 2 to 3  limes

* A few dashes of paprika

* Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Dice the tomatoes and onion.
  2. Chop the cilantro and garlic.
  3. In a large bowl add the garbanzo, beans, corn, tomatoes, onion, garlic and cilantro.
  4. Squeeze in the juice of the limes.  
  5. Add the olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined and you are done! It's really that simple.
  6. To serve, crumble some tortilla chips and place the salad on top of it.  

If you'd like you can also add shredded vegan cheese to it. A little hot sauce wouldn't hurt either!

This dish will keep good for a few days in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

    I am confused as to the black beans. They don't show in the picture and are not mentioned in the directions for when to add. Are black beans a typo?

      The directions say to add the garbanzos, beans ( that is referring to the black beans). I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I will triple check my work next time.
