I like to serve this salad when we're grilling our dinner. Also is my lunch when trying to take off those few extra pounds. Easy to prepare and so pretty.
- 3 plum tomatoes
- 1 medium cucumber
- 16 ounces great northern beans, rinsed and drained
- 16 ounces red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Discard seeds from tomatoes;dice.
- Peel cucumber,leaving some peel on.
- Discard seeds and dice.
- In large bowl combine all ingredients and mix.
Couldn't find great northern beans so I used navy beans instead. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was totally delicious. The next time I prepare this salad I will add 1/2 a cup of chopped red onion to just kick up the flavor a bit. Another plus for this recipe is that it is totally diabetic friendly and I am always on the search for new ideas as a diabetic. Thanks for posting Chicopee...............this is a keeper.

My intention was to make this for an occasion at work, but DH didn't know that and got into it. Of course, that was my excuse to do the same! It's delicious and couldn't be simpler to make. I did use the oil, and the one tablespoon is just enough. This will be a hit next summer, too, when we do a lot of entertaining or have to bring a dish; vinaigrette dressings are always a hit. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Chicopee!
