Garden Bean Salad

If you like gazpacho, you’re gonna love this!

I started to eat about 2 cups of this about every 3 days after I had my big funk day ( somewhere around day 30) to make sure I’m getting enough protein. Yes, its not juice, but hey this is my program and my body and its still veggies.

Generally I use a combination of black, kidney, pinto, great northern, edamame, chick peas – whatever I happen to have/grab out of the pantry. In this batch shown I used:

  • 8oz packet of edamame, steamed & shelled
  • 1 can dark kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 can great northern beans, rinsed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper chopped fine, but not minced
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped fine, but not minced
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped fine, but not minced
  • 2 scallions, sliced, white & green parts
  • 1 cucumber, chopped fine, but not minced
  • 1 really big tomato, chopped fine, but not minced
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup Old Greek Salad Dressing (whatever store brand is on sale)
  • S&P to taste ( I go really heavy on the pepper and fairly light on the salt, cause there’s sodium in the dressing)

Mix it all up and stick it in theĀ  ‘fridge, best served chilled – enjoy!
