RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Here's another quick dish that doesn't heat up the kitchen. This yummy salad makes a nice, light lunch with some crackers and fruit
Greek Bean Salad
Pinto beans replace the feta cheese in this variation on the classic Greek salad. (Michelle Riley/The HSUS)
One 15-ounce can of pinto or kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 medium cucumber (peeled, seeded, and diced)
1 medium fresh tomato (halved, seeded, and diced)
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade
1/4 cup bottled nonfat Italian salad dressing
Salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir to blend.
Tip: The easiest way to chiffonade basil is to stack several leaves together, roll them up like a jelly roll, and then slice thinly across the roll. Always chiffonade basil at the last moment with a sharp knife to keep it from browning.
