Broccoli Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite things to eat.  It goes great as a side dish or even as a quick meal because it has your veggies and protein.  Once you make it, it can sit in your refrigerator for about a week and makes a lot of servings for very little money.  Even my daughter (who dislikes most veggies) loves this, especially the broccoli.  This costs about $4.00 to make and makes between 8 and 10 servings.

Ingredients:

  1. One large freshly diced tomato.
  2. One Large Head of Broccoli.
  3. One 15.5 ounce can Chic Peas.
  4. One 15.5 ounce can Kidney Beans.
  5. 1/2 cup Italian Dressing.

Start Cooking:

  • Cut the broccoli into bite size pieces, making sure to cut off the stems (you can keep the stems if you choose but my daughter wont eat them so I take them off). 
  • Put the cut up broccoli and the diced tomato in a large bowl.
  • Open the can of chic peas and kidney beans and put them in a strainer.  Rinse them off gently with water, then add them to the large bowl.
  • Add the Italian dressing to the large bowl and mix well.
  • Cover with either a lid or plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
