This garbanzo salad, good anytime with dried apricots, gets a midsummer upgrade here with chopped, fresh apricots. The chickpeas are mixed with Italian parsley and other herbs, kalamata olives, and extra virgin olive oil.
A purple smoothie using Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend, soy or other milk, strawberries, and a little watermelon. Contains pomegranate arils and dark sweet cherries blended with other fruits.
The amazing thing about this salad– which I’ll admit, seems like an odd combination on the face of it– is how the sweet watermelon takes all the bitterness out the arugula. Add a simple dressing and pine nuts, and you’ll have this nutritious salad on the table in no time.
