A very healthy alternative to pasta salad for picnics or pot lucks. This recipe was given to me by Gail Johnston, my Broker. She ad libs it and I took liberties with the veggies I included. She adds dried fruit like cranberries or raisins, but I omitted those for this version. Her recipe also calls for black beans, I only had Garbanzos, so thats what I used. Again, ad lib with what you like. Enjoy!
