This yummy compliment to any meal is super boat-friendly.  Most of the ingredients are non-perishable and can be kept on board for long periods of time before preparing. Store prepared salad in Ziploc ® bags to help maximize use of refrigerator space (freezer type with double zip is preferred to assure no leaking).


  • 28 oz can chick peas or garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 15.25 oz can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • ½ green pepper, diced
  • ½ c chopped red onion
  • 1 c crumbled feta
  • 7 oz can salsa verde (like Herdez brand)
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 t curry powder

Mix all ingredients. Stir well and serve – it’s that simple!
