Mediterranean Bean Salad-6

This Mediterranean Bean Salad is so light and fresh, made with lemon juice, mint and parsley. This can be served as a side dish, perfect for potlucks or to make it a main for lunch serve it over spiralized cucumbers.

For the spiralized cucumber, I used one medium English cucumber which made enough for two servings using my Inspiralizer. This only adds about 12 calories to the whole salad. Be sure to cut them into shorter pieces before eating.

  1. I don’t want a recipe that uses CANNED BEANS, why can’t you just let us know how to COOK the damn beans and get on with the salad. I don’t want a cupboard full of cans! I already HAVE lots of dry beans. I just want to use them.

      https://letmegooglethat.com/?q=how+to+cook+black+beans

      Calm yourself and a quick Google search will tell you how to cook “the damn beans”. Then proceed with the recipe that we all enjoy. Good grief!!

    • Are you for real? No one is forcing you to use this website for recipes. Use your fingers to Google and knock this shit off. The world doesn’t revolve around you. 

    • How rude

    • Wow! This is the comment of an extremely angry and entitled person. There is no need to spread your hate in this world. Don’t we see enough of that already? IMAGINE throwing an adult temper tantrum because a recipe uses canned beans instead of dry. LOL. Kindness is the key to happiness, and since you seem very cruel and unhappy, I assume kindness is not important to you,
      To the OP, I’m so sorry you have to deal with ignorant vitriol while sharing your FREE recipes. Thanks for the recipes! ✌🏼 

  2. I pretty much lived on this for several month while in Mexico during the summer season.
    Added feta cheese and marinated artichokes at times
    Swapped lemon for lime or various vinegars to modify
    cooked beans from scratch which was amazing. When not available always rinse canned beans to reduce salt intake
