Best Bean Salad
My favorite bean salad. I've lost 30 pound so far eating this salad. I keep a bowl of it in the refrigerator. Here's the basic recipe, it one of those flexible ones.
cook up 2 or 3 ears of white corn, while they are cooking
chop 1/2 red onion
1 to 2 red peppers
1 to 3 tomatoes, heritage tomatoes best
handful of cilantro
1,2 or 3 cloves of garlic,depending on what you like
Rinse and drain 2 cans of white northern beans
Season with lots of ground cumin
sea salt and fresh pepper
juice from one lime or 6 key limes
Cut the cooked corn off the cob, and lightly mix it all together.
Great over greens, easy to take for lunch.
For variations, add capers
cooked green beans
use one can of black beans, rinsed
My estimate is 3 WW points, high fiber and protein from the beans.
