This salad is delicious, healthy, versatile and can help you drop a few pounds! Beans and vegetables are so good for your body and so delicious you will want to eat this all the time - I did and dropped 10 LBS without changing anything else. One key is my dressing I sell - CGD - so email and I can get it to you.
Susan's Bean and Kale Salad - makes enough for a couple of dinners.
Ingredients: NOTE - add any additional vegetables desired. I also sometimes add left over chicken or steak. So good.
2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup Marconi's hot giardiniera or another spicy Italian "relish" mixture (available in most grocery stores)
1 bunch kale, washed
1 avocado, cu into bite-sized pieces
3 TBS chopped cilantro
2 green onions, chopped
1/3 cup chopped jalapeno's (optional)
Susan's GCD - or another dressing
Cut the ribs out of the kale and chop into bite-sized pieces. Combine all ingredients but dressing and mix well. Add CGD until coated and mix again. Enjoy!!!!!
