You can serve this as a salad or wrap it in the tortilla. I left the garbanzo beans whole, you could also mash them for a different texture.
We have been making this slaw for years without really measuring the nuts and mayo. This recipe has a good balance of flavors without being overly high in calories.
My mom always made “greek” potato salad with hot potatoes. This dish is similar in that the hot potato brings out the flavors of the dressing.
Grilling the vegetables and fruit gives a great caramelized flavor to the salad. We enjoyed it when it was first made, but the second day it was even better as the flavors blended and the dressing absorbed into the fruit and vegetables.
We really love the dressing for this salad, with the mint and parsley flavors. I had a little tomato left over from the day before and added that. You can substitute toasted pin nuts or almonds for the cashews.
This meal is quick and easy. I got this recipe from Forks over Knives Summer 2020. I think the dressing needed some garlic, I might add that next time. Also top with sesame seeds for some crunch, one tbsp is 30 calories.
That just seemed like too much work, and decided to just cut up everything. It is a very healthful salad and it is tasty, but i felt the peppers were too chewy. When I do this again I will sauté the peppers in a tbsp of olive oil (that will add 60 calories to each serving).
This salad is delicious. The first time I made it I halved the brussels sprouts and tossed them in the olive oil and baked them at 400˙F for 15 minutes till they started to brown on the edges.
