Lemon Garbanzo Salad with Feta

Lemon Garbanzo Salad with Feta Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr
Bulgur (steamed, dried, and crushed wheat kernels) can be quickly hydrated in boiling water. Combine it with canned beans and feta cheese for a nutritious vegetarian salad. This makes one serving, but it is easily doubled and is even better the next day.
