Honey Balsamic Bean Salad

Honey Balsamic Bean Salad
from 101cookbooks.com
1 (15 oz) can each of Black, Garbanzo and Pinto beans
1 bag of Romaine lettuce
2/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
3 stalks green onion
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine the beans, lettuce, almonds, and green onion in a large salad bowl. Set aside. Make the dressing by whisking the olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and sea salt in a small container. Add to the salad bowl along with a good amount of the dressing. Toss well, and add more dressing if you like.

I never knew I like beans until now! This would be a great recipe to bring to a barbeque or a picnic. I double the original recipe because otherwise I'd have 3 cans of beans that are half full sitting around. As a result, it made a lot of beans, thus, you should share your beans :)
