This flavor-packed vegetarian salad is a picnic mainstay.

Step into NYC’s Haven’s Kitchen, a cooking school and café that focuses on food waste, sustainability issues and responsible sourcing. This garbanzo feta salad is an instant picnic classic — make it today!

Even people with an aversion to beans like garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, for their nutty flavor and firm texture. They can be a bit bland and dry by themselves, though, so this recipe adds flavor, texture, and color with feta, red onion, cucumber, and parsley. Feel free to use canned beans. The vinaigrette is the icing on the cake.
