End of Summer Gluten Free Bean Salad
Hard to believe the end of summer is here. Back to school, work and Fall.
As I grapple with behaving and eating healthy, I decided to make a bean salad to take for my lunches this week.
At a recent Farmer’s Market in Muskoka, I bought a dried bean salad mix from Spill The Beans ( www.spillthebeans.ca ) This seems easy and my bean mix selection is already done for me.
I have modified the Spill The Bean recipe slightly as I didn’t have all the ingredients she recommended to add to her “Hearty Fearty” bean salad.
1) Soak the dried beans and then cook as per the Spill The Bean packaging
2) I diced up a red onion, 1/2 cup of mini carrots and a cup of peas from fresh pods
3) I whipped up the recommended salad dressing: 2/3 vinegar, 2 table spoons honey, 1/2 cup of oil. I added 1/2 table spoon of freeze dried cilantro.
4) after the beans cooled, I mixed in my other ingredients, then poured in salad dressing over the top!
Voila my lunch is made for the week!
Enjoy! It’s yummy!
And check out Spill The Beans! Highly recommend!
