What's for Dinner - Beans and Pepper Salad


Beans and Pepper Salad


Serves 2 as a main dish


5 sweet baby peppers, cut in rings
1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
4 celery stalks, sliced
10-15 baby carrots, sliced
1/2 cup feta cheese
croutons (optional)

3 tbs olive oil
salt to taste
1 tsp Dijon mustard
3 tbs vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar

- I just toss all ingredients except croutons together including dressing ingredients - no need to wash extra dish after dressing preparation, right? Top salad with croutons and enjoy in tandem with Mushroom Bread Crisps (see recipe below)

Bread Crisps with Mushrooms and Cheese


Serves 2 as addition to the main dish


2 bread crisps

2 tbs of mushrooms fried with onion (it was among leftovers in my fridge). Any kind of leftovers can be used here :)
2 tsp shredded cheese

Top crisps with mushrooms, sprinkle with cheese and broil for minute or two until cheese melts. Enjoy with soup or salad or on its own!
