The 4th of July always makes us think of yummy summer salads. We just can’t get enough of them!
When you put beans and grains together it becomes a perfect protein! Then when you add all kinds of veggies in you have a really healthy salad. Great for all kinds of fun in the sun!
If you like you can use all one grain instead of three however we really think the combination adds great flavor and texture.
Perfect Protein Veggie Salad
- 3 cups cooked black beans
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 cup cooked millet
- 1 cup cooked rice
- 1 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cup olives, sliced
- 1 16 oz. can artichoke hearts
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 3 stalks celery, sliced
- 1 bell pepper, diced (any color)
- 1 cucumber, diced
- ½ red onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
If you like you can top with some avocado. We wouldn’t suggest mixing it into the salad though because it will go brown fairly quickly. The flavors taste even better if you let it chill overnight however it tastes amazing right away too!
Have some friends who like healthy salads? Don’t forget to share! This recipe is both vegan and vegetarian!
