3 minute 3 bean salad

“a last minute side dish!”

We’ve all been there: prepping and cooking all day for a nice meal.  The guests will arrive in 2 hours and that’s when you start to go nuts:  Like wonder if you have enough time to dye your roots, ponder whether to whip up a centrepiece out of the weeds growing in the garden or panic at the idea of not having enough food to serve!

Here is a solution to the latter: A colorful and healthy side dish you can quickly put together using a few staple ingredients.

1 can of 3 bean medley
1 cup of very finely chopped, uncooked broccoli
3 to 4 tablespoons of your favorite salsa
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (about 2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro
salt & pepper to taste
 

Open the can of beans and pour into a strainer (over the sink) and rinse with cool water.  Let drain.  Place the beans in a bowl and mix in all the ingredients listed above.  Taste and add a little more salt pepper or salsa if you prefer.  Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  1. Heya excellent blog! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of work?

    I’ve no understanding of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just had to ask. Kudos!

    • Thanks, and no. With some time, a little research and wordpress.com I was able to put this blog together. However gppd photography is SO IMPORTANT. Get a camera that takes a good pictures… most of them do if you have bought one in the last 2 to 4 years… then, experiment. Even with a good camera you can take bad pics. You will take 100 pics and only end up with 2 good ones in the very beg. Find a good photo editor software too! Very important. But eventually you won’t need it… you will learn what is a good and bad photo before you even take it. Good luck.
