Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

The last time I made Garbanzo Beans/Chickpea Salad, I enjoyed it quite a lot. As a result, such bean salads make quite a regular appearance, especially on hot summer days; and given a new spin each time. As always, if I can accomplish a one-dish meal in a salad, why not?

I have cooked this bean soup (Tuscan Bean Soup) before, but this time replacing the "greens" from kale to collard.
