Garbanzo Bean Salad with Mexican Mango Dressing by My New Roots

photo 1

I made this salad for my family….but after trying it I packed it up, put it in the fridge and ate the whole thing myself till it was gone! Thanks My New Roots!

Ingredients:
3 cups cooked garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chickpeas) (about 2 cans)
1 red & yellow bell pepper
3 carrots
½ large jicima root
1 cup chopped spinach
½ cup cilantro
(You can use what ever veggies you would like! Try to use veggies that will soak up some of the dressing. Get your greens in there- any greens would be good! )

Dressing:
1 large, ripe mango
¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 large green onions, with tops
3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp. sea salt
½ chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (substitute ¼ tsp. ground chipotle or use your favorite chili spice)

Directions:
1. Peel mango and place in a blender with all other dressing ingredients. Blend on high until uniform and creamy. It will look like a smoothie. Season to taste.
2. In a large bowl, pour dressing over garbanzo beans and let sit while you prepare the rest of the salad filling. ( I didn’t use all of the dressing. You could also add more veggies to soak up the dressing)
3. As you chop up the vegetables for the salad, add them as you go and stir to get an idea on how much more you need. Stop when the salad is well-dressed but not super gloppy.
4. Serve with sliced avocado and lime wedges on the side. Garnish with more cilantro, sprouts, pumpkin seeds, or whatever you have on hand.

To make it a complete meal: Serve this salad on top of coconut rice or quinoa.
