SAM_1586SAM_1587SAM_1561This is a hearty salad with a lot of texture and flavor. Leave out any ingredient you don’t want or can’t source.

I used a bag of Anasazi Beans I found at WalMart, very inexpensive, But any type will do. You can even use canned beans if you don’t want to cook anything, . I covered the dried beans with cold water & soaked them overnight that way they only need to cook for a short time I drained them covered them in cold water in a pot with the peeled quartered onion and carrot then simmer for about 30-45 minutes or more until just tender yet still firm so they don’t fall apart when mixed together.
