Artichoke, Garbanzo, and Red Pepper Salad

This salad has the bright red and green colors of Christmas. It's easy to throw together and one of those great recipes to take away for a holiday dinner party.

1 can (16 oz.) garbanzo beans, drained well
6 oz. roasted red peppers, diced
1 pkg. (6 oz.) frozen artichokes hearts, thawed
2 scallions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
3 T. red wine vinegar
1 t. minced fresh oregano, or 1/4 t. dried
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 c. fresh flat-parsley
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a serving dish. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. The recipe can be made several days in advance. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
