Last week our sister Marnie was about to head off for a couple of weeks for a trip, so brought along a salad to the family BBQ she called “everything in the bottom of my fridge salad”. It was delicious, so today I decided to try my own version and it went a little something like this:
Everything is finely diced up:
Sprout combo (not sure what they are called, those knobbly ones before they sprout)
Tin of chick peas
Tin of kidney beans
Tin of 4 bean mix
Because I decided to add so many beans to mine I decided to make a dressing to put over the top. Sometimes the kids can be a bit funny on to much of a raw kidney bean taste, so thought a nice dressing might help.
For my dressing it was a mustard vinaigrette and went a little something like this
about a tablespoon of dijon mustard
about 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
teaspoon of sugar.
Bit of a pour of olive oil.
bit of garlic crushed
Give it all a whisk up and pour just enough over it to taste (I didn’t use all of my dressing). Make sure you give it all a really good toss and Bob’s your Uncle.
Next on the list is some chicken meatballs to go with the salad.
