Marinated Mediterranean salad

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Marinated Mediterranean salad

2 cans (15 ounces each) garbanzo beans,
rinsed and drained

1/2 large purple onion, chopped
2 large cucumbers (about 9 inches each),
peeled and chopped

1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup pitted Greek olives, chopped
2 tablespoons capers
1/3 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 cup bottled reduced-fat Italian dressing
1/2 small lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse-ground pepper

Combine beans, onion, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, capers, and Feta in a large serving dish. Toss gently to combine.

Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend.
