Falafel Salad

Falafel is a Middle Eastern specialty featuring fried patties made of ground garbanzo beans and spices. We pan-fried the patties and served them over greens for a main-dish salad.

Prep: 48 minutes; Cook: 7 minutes per batch

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups lettuce, 1/2 cup cucumber, 1/4 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons green onions, and 3 patties)
