“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.
