Bean Salad

The following recipe is from a good friend of mine. She also happens to be an excellent photographer. If you have a chance stop by her site and look at her wonderful photos.

We had this bean salad as a side dish, but I took home leftovers and ate it wrapped in a tortilla. It was awesome!

15 oz cans of the following

  • Black Eye Peas
  • Kidney Beans
  • Black Beans
  • White Beans

Drain all the beans and put them in a bowl
For every can of beans add:

  • 1/2 tsp of seasoning salt (or just regular salt)
  • 1/4 tsp lemon pepper (or just regular pepper)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame seed
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seed
  • 1 tbsp flax seed

Add according to your taste:

  • chopped green onions
  • red vinegar
  • olive oil
  • peanuts (optional)

Mix together and serve. This tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge, so I would recommend making it the day before you want to serve it.  This is a healthy and inexpensive salad that even my kids ate and enjoyed!
