I decided to make bean salad for lunch so I kept about 1.5 cups of beans in the pot to cook longer. A bean salad is simple to make and different vegetables can be added to the salad depending on what you have in the fridge and preferences.
|I opened up a 19 ounce can of mixed beans. I drained the liquid from the can and washed the beans to get rid of excess salt. I put the beans and green beans in a medium size bowl.|
|I chopped 1/2 pepper (yellow and red), one stalk of celery and two slices of red onion. I added this to the beans.|
|I took a handful of parsley from the garden, chopped it and added it to the bean salad.|
|The finished salad. It is quite colourful. For the dressing, I mixed together one tbsp olive oil, two tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of cumin and some ground pepper. I added this to the bean salad and tossed everything together.|
