1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. kosher salt

Lemon wedges, squeeze the juice into the mixture and then use to garnish


In large bowl combine chopped tomatoes, garbanzo beans, cucumber, sweet pepper, cilantro and onion. Set aside.


Prepare dressing in shaker jar combining oil, vinegar, salt, garlic and sweetener. Shake well. Pour over vegetable mixture. Chill for 4-24 hours.


Allow mixture to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. Serve alone or with mixed greens. Garnish with lemon wedges.

Honestly, this is so good, that you will want to double it. We couldn't even wait for it to chill so I'm sure it's even better after being chilled.


We think it would make a good side dish with grilled salmon. It's colorful and would be good to brighten those winter days that are coming up. :-)
