chix celeryThis is a great recipe that combines some very tasty, cancer-fighting ingredients. You can also make this with cucumbers instead of the celery should you have a bounty in the garden.

• 1/4 cup olive oil (or garlic infused oil, see below)
• 1 teaspoon ground cumin
• ¼ teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

• 2 15 1/2-ounce cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained, or 1lb dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and cooked as directed)
• 3 or 4 stalks celery, chopped, about 2 cups
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (cilantro or dill work well too)
• 1/3 cup thinly sliced drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 1 garlic clove, minced (can omit and use garlic infused olive oil)

Combine oil, cumin and red pepper flakes in a large bowl (if you like, you can use 1 tablespoon cumin seeds, warm in olive oil with the red pepper flakes, but use very low heat; you can also add the garlic here. Cool before proceeding)

Add remaining ingredients. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper.
