Mixed Bean Salad

This nutrient dense, summery salad is a delicious accompaniment to a BBQ’d or griddled piece of meat, for a high protein meal, or if you wish to keep it vegetarian, it would be great with some griddled halloumi or cubed feta. If you prefer more carbohydrate with it, then some pitta bread would help to mop up the remnants of the tasty salad dressing. Its the perfect salad for days when you feel like you just need to take care of your body and provide it with plenty of good stuff, while not compromising on flavour. The varying textures help to keep it interesting. I hope you like it. I serve it with turkey steaks as they keep to the theme of the dish, alow in calories, high in protein and very nutritious. Don’t worry about the meat being bland, the salad carries enough flavour to compensate for it.
