Salad Days

August 7, 2013

It’s my favorite white bean salad 3 ways…a base of cannellini  and garbanzo beans, green pepper, red or green onion, persian cucumbers and radishes in a simple vinaigrette  Simple enough to prepare ahead and it holds well served chilled or at room temperature…just perfect for these hot summer days.

Take it to Greece and add a handful of kalamata olives , a sprinkle of oregano and some cubed feta cheese. Maybe the middle east by adding a touch of sumac to the dressing and some halved grape tomatoes , toasted pita pieces  and some fresh mint to the salad.

 All  contain enough protein and crisp vegetables to be a satisfying  lunch on its own or if it’s time for dinner, any of the three would be perfect along side a platter of grilled lamb chops. Mmm…lamb chops.
