Ingredients

    1 large (or more smaller) beets (about 1 lb)
    2 large ears of corn (~8") (or 1 large pkg. of frozen corn)
    1 can garbanzo beans
    1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
    1/4 c. olive oil
    1 Tbs honey or other sweetener, to taste
    chopped or slivered mint leaves, to taste
    oregano leaves, to taste
    salt, pepper, to taste
    feta cheese (plain, or mint/oregano seasoned)
    chopped scallions, to taste (about 4 stalks)

Directions

Open the can of garbanzo beans, rinse and drain.
