Chickpea Salad

By Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.C.N., C.N.S., C.B.T.

Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are a fantastic source of fiber, which is a mainstay for cancer prevention, cardiovascular wellness and overall health. Because they are low-glycemic, chickpeas don’t require much insulin for their digestion; hence they also are helpful in preventing or controlling diabetes. Red onion, rosemary and tomatoes add an extra dose of antioxidants along with strong, fragrant flavor.

*Choose organic produce whenever possible*

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and chill for several hours. Serves 4.
