White Bean Salad - Day 35

    Newer Older

    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
    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).

      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!

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

      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.
