Bean Salad

Bean Salad

About this Recipe:

When I was New York last year, I fell in love with the number of salads bars around Manhattan. It was so that I did not have anything else for lunch or many dinners while we were there! The build your own salad bars had so many wonderful ingredients that I manage to have a different and delicious salad every time. Salads are wonderful option for a light lunch and can be prepared easily. This one is a vegetarian salad but beans added to the salad provide the daily required protein. This is just a one version of my favorite salad recipes; hope it inspires you to try out as well.

Tomatoes: 1 Medium
