Garbanzo beans, sliced tomatoes and onion are chilled with a no-fuss dressing in this change-of-pace salad that comes from Barbara Carbee's kitchen. The Brooksville, Florida reader tosses together the refreshing medley right before serving.

"It was good enough the way it was, but I think I will add a little more vinegar next time or maybe lemon juice. Also added some feta cheese, and a little more basil, since I love basil. Maybe a little garlic? But it was still very good, and I will make it again with modifications."
