Salad to Cool Off..
Folsom can get really hot in summers and when were not in the mood to turn on the stove in the house, this was a welcome salad at home. The tanginess of the lemon juice against the garam masala and ginger was very interesting. You can serve this salad at room temperature or chilled. We liked it both ways. This is an excellent potluck dish.

Lemon juice – 2 T

- If using canned Garbanzo beans, drain and wash the beans and place in a large bowl.
