Wilted Spinach Salad with Roasted Tomatoes and Garbanzo Beans Recipe


I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We went to my hometown for their summer festival on Saturday and had alot of fun. Found some awesome vintage furniture for our new house too! Score! Don't you just love small town festivals??

Today's recipe is a fresh and delicious side, or meatless main dish. I just love trying new salad recipes and this one hit the spot. I absolutely loved these flavors! The tomatoes and garbanzos are roasted then tossed with the rest of the ingredients. The warmth from the tomatoes and beans wilts the spinach slightly, and the dressing adds the perfect touch to bring it all together!
