modern day bean salad

This recipe is a particular favorite of mine because it’s quick and doesn’t require any cooking.  It also keeps well in the refrigerator and makes a quick anytime lunch.

Fat-burning star ingredient: Beans. They contain hunger-curbing protein and fiber, and are low in fat.





  • 1 can reduced-sodium chickpeas
  • 1 can reduced-sodium black beans
  • 1 can reduced-sodium cannellini beans
  • 1 can reduced-sodium red beans or kidney beans
  • 2 roasted red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • ½ cup chopped sweet peppers or peperoncini
  • ¼ cup capers

Rinse well and drain the canned beans. (Bonus: Rinsing the beans can reduce up to 40 percent of their sodium content.) Stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl and toss with the avocado dressing below.
