White Bean Salad - Day 35

Part of my diabetes lifestyle is making attempts to eat a relatively low-carb diet. This is hard for me sometimes because I love bread and pasta (I'm part Italian, what can I say?), but I made a white bean salad last night that was very easy and had some serious zip to it.

 

It may not suit everyone's tastes, but I liked it. And made it up as I went along. :)

 

Kerri's Seriously Zippy White Bean Salad

 

2 cans of white cannelini beans, rinsed

1/4 red onion, minced

10 slices of pepperoni, chopped

1/2 cucumber, chopped

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

salt

pepper

lemon juice

 

It's this simple: Add all the ingredients to a mid-sized sedan (just kidding - use a bowl), mix together, and add salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste.

 

It was delicious, full of fiber, and very, very easy on the ol' blood sugars. It does require a significant amount of toothpaste and mouthwash to eradicate the taste, but it's worth it. :)

    Sounds good, I'd do anchovy instead of pepperoni...Beans and fiber are always good for my blood sugar. Thanks for the recipe.

    Mmmm, sounds good. I might have to try this (but without the pepperoni or anchovy - I'm veggie).

    It looks like you could just reach in and grab this!

    Kerri, this looks lovely! My mom used to make a scrumptious southwestern black bean and brown rice salad that I adored as a kid... you've inspired me to try my own version sans rice!

    Looks yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
  • Sara Nicastro 7y

    Thoughts on what I should do if I depised onions... I would leave them out but then is it still zippy?
  • lovelylilsmartie 7y

    I saw this on your blog today. I'm gonna try it. =0 )
  • Liz 7y

    This looks really good. I love beans!
  • daenaaaa 7y

    Yum! I might try this using kidney beans. Those are my favourite kind of beans. Mmmmmm. Sounds good for a post-chinese new year diet.
  • laur_n 7y

    Oh thank you for the recipe. I'm a vegetarian and this is right up my street.
