Bean & Broccoli Salad

Bean & Broccoli SaladEarlier this week I posted a recipe for a Mixed Bean Salad Ala Carte. This is a slightly different take on that same recipe that excludes the kidney beans and red peppers.

My daughter is not a big fan of either and since she is back on the Blimpy Girl eating plan, I am trying to make dishes she will enjoy.

I swapped our yellow waxed beans for the kidney beans and┬ácucumbers for the red bell pepper. The dressing is┬áminus the juice of the oranges and 2 teaspoons of Girard’s Raspberry dressing was used instead.

Fresh parsley is a key ingredient.

My verdict: Don’t omit the fresh parsley. I had to wait for my honey man to bring some home after work. It made all the difference in how this salad tastes. You’ve “gotta” use fresh parsley. The dried stuff just doesn’t add flavor. Besides, parsley is cheap, easy to find year round and about zero in calories. Grab the REVISED Recipe
