In my opinion a perfect, fresh spring or summer salad.
You can either eat this as a main dish salad or as a side dish.
CHOPPED VEGETABLE AND BEAN SALAD
3 Tbs. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup peeled and diced carrots
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup diced black olives
3/4 tsp chopped fresh oregano
2 tsp chopped fresh basil
3/4 cup diced tomato
3/4 cup (cooked ~ not dried) white beans
1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans
In a large bowl, combine salad ingredients.
Add salad dressing and toss lightly.
*** When I make it, I don't really measure out the salad ingredients. I usually use 1 can of navy beans and 1 can of garbanzo beans instead of the 3/4 cup and 1/2 cup the recipe says. I also used grape tomatoes and either cut them in half or leave them whole.
Here's where the parties are:
