You know when you really need to make a good but super fast and easy meal? Well that's the situation I was in tonight. I'm in the middle of exams and essays and, thus, am in a rush. I looked into my fridge to see what I had. Some left over fajita toppings (jalapenos, avocados, lettuce), which I thought I would put to good use. This salad is great because you can toss whatever you want into it and have something healthy, hearty, and delish ready in less than 7 minutes. I used canned beans since I was in a rush , but you could always soak some fresh ones. This would evidently take more than 7 minutes.
For the Salad:
1 can mixed beans
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup avocados, chopped into small chunks
1 stem green onion
3 rounds from a jalapeno pepper, finely minced
For the Dressing:
Juice of 1 small lemon, or 1/2 a big lemon
3 tbs olive oil
splash of red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all the solid ingredients in a bowl. Combine dressing ingredients and shake well. Pour dressing over salad, mix well, and eat! If you have some time, it would be a good idea to refrigerate before eating for about an hour so that all the flavours blend together. But I ate it just after making and it tasted awesome. Enjoy!
