This salad is an easy, tasty, full of fibre dish. I add it to rice or barley for a filling lunch.
Yes, there is sugar in this one. I have reduced it as much as possible from the original recipe. This is a trade off – a bit of sugar for all the fibre goodness and nutrients that come with legumes.
In a medium to large bowl (preferably with a lid) combine:
- 2 cans of beans (I like to use small beans like navy, black and Mexican red beans as they are easier to digest – read less gassy)
- 1 cup wax beans and green beans, cut up (frozen works well)
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 1/2 cup red onion, diced
- 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
Toss well, cover and refrigerate overnight. Toss again and enjoy!
