Citrus Garbanzo Veggie Nachos


The citrus dressing makes this dip irresistible.  You can make this your own by substituting the beans with tofu,  the radish with any crunchy vegetable or fruit like apples or carrots or jicama or even nuts, the pineapple with mango or any exotic fruit and the red pepper with bottled pimento.  The citrus dressing though I suggest you keep as is except for the amounts of some ingredients like the sweetener and amount of salt.
