Note: If you are using garbanzo beans from a can drain them in a colander first and then rinse them with room-temperature water (rinsing helps reduce the sodium).
Serves: 2-3


  • 1 1/2  cup cooked garbanzo beans 
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1 green apple, peeled and shredded
  • 1 Orange, peeled and diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minsed
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
  • fresh dill or other herb like parsley/cilantro
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. sunflower seed oil
  • 1/2 lettuce (I used Boston lettuce)


To cook the garbanzo beans, soak the dried chickpeas overnight in cold water. Drain the garbanzo beans and put in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover generously. Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 10-15 minutes. Drain.

In a large bowl mix together all the vegetables, fruits, grains and seeds.

In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice, sunflower seed oil, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over the salad, lightly toss the salad. Sprinkle fresh herbs on a top and serve.

Nice, nice, nice! very interesting combination of ingredients. I would not come up with an idea of mixing garbanzo beans with orange and red onions. Thank you for the inspiration, Yelena.

I was just telling my husband that I went to the gym this morning and I came home and ate the leftover (which could feed two people)... Ahhh! Now looking at your salad, I know I should have eaten THIS salad lunch instead. Looks so healthy and now I feel like I need to go back to the gym. Love this nutritious salad!
