Bean Salad

February 3, 2012

Okay friends today I had the best lunch and thought I’d share a few quick recipes with you. Today’s lunch was a bean salad on a bed of spinach. The bean salad was super simple and it looked like this
It was simply divine, very filling and extremely satisfying.

Bean Salad Recipe
1 Can Bean Medley (or you can just make your own but be creative get some garbanzo’s, kidney, navy, pinto…go to town with the beans)
Red Onion sliced (however much you want. It really adds to the flavour so don’t be shy)

Dressing:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Balsamic
A splash of lemon juice or the juice of half a real lemon or lime
A sprinkle of salt

Now, fill your bowl with a bed of lettuce and put your bean salad on top… It’s a meal for everyone, my kids gobbled it down last night. Also, the bean salad is great on day two, all the flavours mix together and it is simply divine.

Another salad dressing recipe that our family LOVES…. Make this with a spinach, chinese cabbage, tomato, red onion, cucumber, orange pieces, feta cheese and nuts (if there are no allergies. almonds or roasted pecans are perfect). My family craves this salad.

Dressing:
4 Tbsp Lime juice
4 Tbsp Orange Juice (or whatever you have on hand)
1 Tbsp Curry Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
Pinch of White Sugar

Hope you enjoy these.
