"If the rain spoils our picnic, but saves a farmer's crop, who are we to say it shouldn't rain?" -Tom Barrett, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

Bean salad is the perfect summer side dish. Not only is it a classic it is super healthy with legumes, veggies and great quality oil.

I like to mix this recipe this in a zipper bag because it's easy to store and transport. The bag can easily be turned to toss the ingredients together.
