My Dad taught me how to make this delicious dish. It's easy, healthy and is quite the crowd pleaser. You can find all of these ingredients for under $10 at Trader Joes.

Ingredients (to serve 2-4 people)
Total time ~15 min
(1) 15 oz cans of garbanzo beans
(1) 3.8 oz can of sliced black olives
(3) green onions chopped
(1/4) a red onion diced
(2) tsp capers
(2) roma tomatoes diced
olive oil
apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
sea salt or table salt
(1/2) a jalapeno pepper finely chopped (optional)
You can play around with the amount of ingredients depending on your preference.

Combine the garbanzo beans, black olives, green onions, red onion, capers, tomatoes and jalapeno pepper in a bowl. 

Drizzle approx. 2 tbs olive oil and 3 tbs apple cider vinegar on top. 

Season with sea salt, pepper and oregano. 

Mix the ingredients throughly and add additional olive oil, vinegar and seasonings to reach desired taste.

This dish is delicious right after you make it or when you refrigerate it for about 1/2 an hour to an hour before you serve it.

This dish is one of my favorites, I hope you enjoy it! Thanks, Dad!
