Ingredients:

  • Salad:
  • 1 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup Celery, diced
  • 3 tablespoons Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup Cannellini beans (160 gr) rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups cooked Wild Rice (490 gr cooked)
  • Vinaigrette:
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 3 tablespoons Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 tablespoons Good Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • Pepper to taste

Directions:

  • For Salad: Combine above ingredients together and toss with vinaigrette (recipe follows). Refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavors to meld and the rice to absorb the vinaigrette.
  • For Vinaigrette: Blend ingredients until emulsified, using a small whisk or fork.
Notes: Recipe makes 5 servings, approximately 1 cup each. This is a very generous serving but very low in calories and high in nutrition. You could easily serve 1/2 cup on a bed of spinach or arugula for a nice spring salad. Toss a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the greens then top with the bean salad.

There are over 500 different types of bananas. That means if you ate a different kind of banana everyday, it would take a year and a half to eat one of each kind!
