Well, I was going to make this because I had some cucumber already chopped up and then I let it go too long, sooooo, I made it without the cucumber! I had a bit of red pepper and some baby carrots and also a bottle of honey mustard that was at the dregs, so I just added balsamic and olive oil to that and shook it up.  I also added some feta!  

Then I added a bit MORE olive oil and vinegar to the mustard bottle and shook some more till it was a thinner salad dressing consistency.  Now I am eating my salad of mixed baby greens, craisins, sunflower seeds and the garbanzo bean salad, topped with avocado.

Yum. :)
