A Refreshing Summer Pesto Bean Salad
Since we're experiencing a pretty significant heat wave right now in Portland, it's important to eat light in order to keep your energy levels high. It's also very common to not get too too hungry during the heat, so fresh, nutritional foods will do a great job of satiating you without weighing you down.
I tried this super easy and delicious garbanzo bean salad that I wanted to share the recipe for. It's essentially a mixture of canned garbanzos, grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and homemade pesto. You're welcome to add other ingredients such as grilled chicken if you like, but I kept this one vegetarian. It's also a great substitute for bruschetta if you wish.
You can follow your own recipe, incorporating the above ingredients or follow this simple one on Two Peas & Their Pod Blog.
