Chicken-Garbanzo Salad

Prep: 18 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 3/4 cups)

Instead of serving this Mediterranean-style salad with pita wedges, make sandwiches. Spoon about 1/2 cup into pita halves lined with extra spinach leaves.


1 (9-ounce) package frozen cooked chopped chicken breast, thawed
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1 cup chopped seeded cucumber (about 1 small)
1/2 cup chopped green onions (about 4 small)
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint or basil
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups prepackaged baby spinach leaves
1/3 cup (1.3 ounces) feta cheese with cracked pepper, crumbled
4 lemon wedges


Combine first 8 ingredients; toss gently. Gently fold in spinach leaves and feta cheese. Serve salad with lemon wedges.
