Garbanzos in Homemade Green Goddess Dressing

goddessgarbanzosMakes about 2 servings.
-1 teaspoon green goddess dressing mix (I like Penzeys which is a salt-free mix of green onion, sugar, basil, celery flakes, minced garlic and dill weed.)
-2 teaspoons water
-2 tablespoons non fat plain yogurt
-2 tablespoons low fat mayo
-1 teaspoon grapefruit vinegar (I like Trader Joe’s California Grapefruit)
-Freshly ground pepper & salt, to taste
-¼ cup chopped celery
-1/4 cup chopped apple
-2 tbsp chopped red onion (or to taste)
-2 tbsp dried cranberries
-1 cup cooked chickpeas
To Make the Dressing: Combine 1 teaspoon dressing mix and 2 teaspoons water in a medium bowl; let the mix rehydrate for 5 minutes. Stir in the plain yogurt, low fat mayo, and grapefruit vinegar until well incorporated. Add ground pepper and salt to taste.
Add the celery, apple, red onion, cranberries, and chickpeas to the dressing and stir well to combine.

Note: If you don’t have grapefruit vinegar I’m sure white wine vinegar would work just fine with a splash of citrus. I just happen to have had this bottle of vinegar forever and have been searching for ways to use it up.
