My girls asked me to come up with something filling and healthy that they could have for lunch and snack on after school. A bean salad is the perfect quick and easy meal. Protein, lots of veggies with a tangy delicious vinaigrette. Lasts in fridge for almost a week, just stir before serving.
I did a three bean combo and truly you can use any combination of beans that appeals to you. Same with the veggie combo that you choose. I did a Southwestern spin on this using Honey Chipotle in the vinaigrette. Honey Chipotle is one of my families favorite blends. It is hand blended using granulated honey, sea salt, chipotle powder, granulated onion, Spanish paprika and Italian seasoning. The combination of smokey sweet heat is amazing on salmon, shrimp, chicken, veggies and more.
Now of course you can make your own version of bean salad using beans and veggies of your choice and any spice blend that sounds good to you. See this handy chart to make your own vinaigrette.
