Balela: Another Word For Simple Bean Salad

I always enjoy the cool flavors of Mediterranean food. So when Trader Joe’s came out with a tantalizing Balela salad I snapped it right up; however, when I glanced at the ingredient list the salad went back on the shelf. Garbanzo and black beans with herbs and spices, easy peasy. Most of the ingredients are staples in my pantry so I rushed home and threw together a lovely protein-rich salad.

Eat your heart out Trader Joes!
