Fresh & Easy Bean Salad

In a pinch? This bean salad is super quick to prepare, sure to satisfy and will keep you full for long periods of time.

Now they don’t just call beans the magical fruit for nothing, these babies are packed full of fibre
which is essential to keep things flowing nicely (if you know what I mean) and fibre also breaks down very slowly therefore making you feel nice and full for longer. This dish is great as well because you probably have most of these items in your fridge already! Bonus!
Now lets get to it.

For this recipe you will need:
-2 cans of mixed beans
-2 sweet peppers (preferably organic)
-1 jalapeño (I used only half because I’m a wimp)
-1 /2 red onion
-juice of 1 lime
-2 cloves garlic (finely diced)
-1 tbl spoon honey
-3 tbl spoons olive oil (or coconut oil)
-cilantro (optional)
-salt and pepper to taste

This is how we do it.
Grab a large bowl, combine olive oil, honey, lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, salt and pepper and whisk that up until all ingredients are combined evenly. Your now ready to add in your beans, sweet peppers and red onion.

Toss all ingredients until the dressing is coated nice and even. Voila! Its that simple. Quick, easy and delicious Bean Salad 🙂

Serves 4.

I hope you enjoy!
