Asian Bean Salad

A cool salad on a hot summer's day is refreshing! With the addition of beans it makes for a very satisfying midday meal.

The cook can include any fresh salad vegetables. The goal to keep in mind for this salad is the higher the water content provides more crunch and quenches the thirst! Today's salad includes: red bell pepper, carrots, onion (grated), sun dried tomatoes, and garbanzo beans. Remember to include your favorite fresh herb. Italian parsley can be a subtle yet pungent addition. Toss the veggies in the dressing below and place on a garden fresh bed of your favorite lettuce. And as always, Enjoy!

The dressing is fabulous and from a health and wellness conscious chef. For anyone interested in the  relationship between the foods we eat and the way we feel check out Annemarie Colbin
