Ingredients

  • Great northern beans: 1 can
  • Cucumber: 1 cup diced
  • Roast pepper: 1
  • Olive oil: 1/2 tbsp for roasting pepper, 1/2 tbsp for salad dressing
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Basil: 3-4 leaves
  • Lemon juice: 1 half lemon

Method

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Coat pepper with 1/2 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Roast in oven for 30-35 minutes until it is cooked, roasted, and browned.
  • You can also roast and store the pepper in advance in the refrigerator.
  • Dice the cucumber.
  • Rinse the beans
  • Tear basil leaves into pieces
  • Throw the cucumber, beans and basil in a salad bowl.
  • When the roast pepper is cool enough to handle, rip into pieces, you can also use a fork and knife to do it.
  • Toss the pepper in the bowl
  • Add the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and toss.
  • Refrigerate and serve chilled. It can be a vegan paleo meal by itself or as a side.

Variations

  • Check out my cucumber/tomato bruschetta recipe.  You can use this salad as a bruschetta topper.
  • Vary the herb to your choice. Fresh dill is a great alternative.
  • Vary the beans to your choice. Chickpeas or white kidney beans are great alternatives.
