Mediterranean Bean Salad

Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars
40

"This is an easy, healthy salad that is a great side dish to BBQ chicken, beef or fish! It can also be easily adapted to a Tex-Mex style by changing the lemon to lime, parsley to cilantro and adding ground cumin and/or chili powder! Be sure to add the lemon zest (or lime zest) as this really adds a ZING to the salad!"
