Posted by Doris Romeo on Jun 4, 2006 - 1:02:00 PM

The moment the weather changes and it gets warm, I start making salads. There is no end to the combination of foods that can be used to make salads.

Artichoke heart and garbanzo salad

1  15 oz. can garbanzo beans
1/2 romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
1- 6 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, rinsed well
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 T. grated fresh Romano cheese
salt and pepper

Combine vinegar, mustard and oil in a bowl, whisk until it thickens.  Add all the other ingredients, mix well, chill for one hour and serve. The lettuce will be a little wilted.

Blend all the other ingredients( except the sesame seeds) in a food processor or blender until creamy, cool the eggplant mixture and in a bowl mix with the dressing. Serve room temperature, sprinkle with sesame seeds just before serving.
