Arugula Salad with Garbanzo Beans and Roasted Red Pepper
 

We love arugula salads for the peppery flavor. They go well with most dinners and this particular variation is one of our favorites.

Terry's dressings are famous for their flavor and originality as you will soon find out!

2 cups garbanzo beans

1 cup roasted red peppers, juliened

1/4 cup "best quality" thick balsamic vinegar (such as the "Essenza" that we carry)

1 teaspoon black pepper
