1can (15 ounces) Green Giant® garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1/2cup chopped red onion
1medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2cup creamy Italian dressing

Iceberg lettuce will keep up to one week in the refrigerator. If you plan to use the lettuce within a day or two, remove the core by striking the core end against a flat surface, then twisting the core and lifting it out. Hold the lettuce head, cored end up, under running cold water to separate and clean leaves, then turn it over and drain thoroughly. Refrigerate in sealed plastic bag or a bowl with an airtight lid.

  1. I make this salad more or less, just a little different. Mine called for pepperoni slices. I think I used cheddar cheese.
