Dried Bean Salad

We tried this last night and it was a hit. Fair warning, it is quite filling! We had a ton left over.

You can use lentils, kidney, navy, lima, or miniature edible soybeans, cooked or canned. We used white beans, cooked, and well drained. And I about doubled the recipe.

2 1/2 C. canned or cooked beans

Combine with:
about 1/4 C. French or Thousand Island dressing
A pinch of curry powder or 1/4 C. chopped gherkins or pearl onions.

(I also added some chopped green pepper and tomatoes.)

Serve on lettuce leaves, or plain.
Garnish top with chopped parsley, or chopped chives or grated onions. (I skipped that part.)
