2. Any ideas for dressings for bean salads? I'll post what I usually do under the cut, but I'm looking for a bit more inspiration.
I seem to have stumbled upon this as a dressing and it works pretty well.
Vinegar (I use balsamic)
Salt & Pepper
Whisk together, adjust proportions as desired.
For the salad, I've done this in the past as a rice and bean salad with carrots/finely diced red onions/red peppers, beans (usually a white bean) and brown rice. But today I was feeling in the mood for something else, so I did it with:
-pan fried lima beans (note, I didnt follow the recipe exactly but just pan fried the beans. I'm lazy so I did it using garlic infused oil and on higher heat because waiting 10 minutes was too much time for a hungry me)
-pan fried tomatos
-red peppers (quickly tossed about in a very hot pan to take the edge off but raw is fine if you like it, or roasted would also be great)
Throw everything into a bowl, pour over the dressing and you're good to go.
