Meals from a Can, vol. 1

You may scoff at eating entire meals out of cans, but I'm here to share a savory and satisfying recipe that you won't soon forget!

Cristy's Signature Salad #1

1 can garbanzo beans
1 can artichoke hearts or hearts of palm
1 can diced tomatoes
extra-virgin olive oil (decent quality is best)
balsalmic vinegar (again, good quality stuff is ideal)
salt & pepper

Open cans and drain. Dump contents into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. You can also add other herbs and spices like garlic powder, italian herbs, savory seasoning mix, etc. Add oil and vinegar to taste (I usually end up using a tablespoon or two of each). Mix it up. Voila! A cool, refreshing, and hearty salad that lasts a few days in the fridge.

You're welcome.

That's my grrl...always looking for a good bargain...usually, i only "dump" the contents of a can of garbanzo beans...add salt, pepper, and dry basil...but artichoke hearts and a little: E.V.O.O--well, that just puts it over the top...
