Quick & Tasty 3 Bean Salad

Monday, June 25, 2012

I love recipes where the ingredients can be easily assembled from your pantry and don't take too long to assemble. We recently enjoyed the recipe Honey-Balsamic Bean Salad (serves 6 and has 258 cal per serving) that meets both ideals. The three beans it uses are chickpeas, pinto beans and black beans-- all easily bought in a low salt canned varied. And to avoid any chopping you can buy a pre-packaged and torn romaine lettuce which is part of the ingredients.  The dressing is a light vinaigrette with a touch of honey. We found it a great summer salad. I paired it with with Grilled Herb-coated Chicken Breasts (169 cal) and Raspberry Asparagus Medley (65 cal). It made for a delicious summer dinner. A definite repeat.
