The perfect salad for a hot summer day!

1 can garbanzo beans/chickpeas, drained

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 T curry powder or less to taste (I used spicy!)

1/2 lemon, squeezed

Salt to taste

1/2 Red bell pepper, diced

1/4 small purple onion, diced

1/2 jalepeno, diced (or to taste, mine was MILD)

handful chopped cilantro

Blend yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder & salt together in a medium sized bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and give it a stir to coat evenly with the dressing. Voila!  Refreshingly cool (and healthy!) salad in a matter of 10 minutes.  Now, I have to recommend a nice reisling or gewurztraminer for this dish – something a little sweet to counter the tart and strong taste of the salad.  None of that blush Sable D’Azur, alright? :) (And yes, I know my food picture taking skills suck! ha!)
