I’m gonna go ahead and toot my own horn here and let you know that the salad I make is even better than the one I used to order (sorry, Anytime). It also takes just a few minutes to make a huge batch, and keeps well in the fridge for a quick dinner add-on when you otherwise only have time for boiling hot dogs (the organic, happy-meat kind) . There are a lot of different variations on this theme out there, so experiment and find your own awesome. Tell me what you do, too, so I can keep tweaking this thing. In the meantime, here's my recipe to get your salad obsession off the ground.

1 large tomato (get an heirloom variety if you can… so tasty)
1 green pepper
½ small red onion (omitted in the photo above… I spaced it)
1 cup garbanzo beans
½ cup crumbled feta cheese (I like sheep’s milk feta, but any type works)
¼ to ½ cup sliced, pitted olives
¼ cup chopped parsley
Juice from one large lemon
Olive oil to taste (be generous)
Salt and fresh-ground pepper, to taste
What You’ll Do
Roughly chop the cucumber, tomato, green pepper and onion. Toss with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Enjoy!
