Lovely light salads for summer time. They can be eaten on their own or as a combo as shown below. Get your salad fix today. They are filling meals on their own.
Bean Salad #3 is a great filler for a meal without a lot of prep and goes great with pan-fried chicken. You could also team it with Fish.
Bean salads are substitutes for meat for me and a great filler. Can be used with other meats, fish, prawns, poultry or on its own as a stand alone salad. Great if you have to take a dish to friends and its a little different than the normal salad that everyone brings. I have since found organic bean tins and tins with salt reduced. I always rinse the beans before using so it doesn’t have the brine they are preserved in.
I went out to the vegepod today and discovered there were 2 cucumbers ready for harvest. My Chives in the herb pot were also ready. Steaming fish in microwave is quick and easy but a healthy way to cook fish.
