The invention of this recipe came about during my first ever culinary professional endeavor. I made a week’s worth of food at my home and delivered it to a couple whose newborn had just arrived. Samantha was an old college friend of mine who was willing to take a chance on me without actually ever having tried anything I had ever cooked.
I needed to come up with recipe ideas that would stay good for the week, and would be accepted by their rather picky food requests. Hence, the advent of Garbanzo Bean Tricolore which Samantha requested to be made each week. That it took me only minutes to make, required minimal chopping and wasn’t heavy on the budget was more reason for me to love this salad.
