Healthy Salads with Beans and Lentils
Don't forget about salads as a way to get beans and lentils into your diet. Here are a few suggestions, with links to my recommendations where available.
Besides these special salads, you can also just open a can of beans, drain and rinse them, and use some on your green salad. The key is to see if you can get three servings of legumes a day--your body will thank you.
- Chickpea salad
- Couscous chickpea salad with ginger-lime dressing
- Greek lentil salad
- Rice and black bean salad with cumin dressing
- Three-bean salad (so many variations of this -- search for one that matches your tastes)
