Being a busy mom, blogger and social person means that there is seldom time for in-depth recipes and meals however, healthy choices are always a main focus of mine. I enjoy tossing beans and seeds on as many recipes as I can and testing out the flavors. Such is the case with this salad.
My friend stopped by and while the kids played, I made this salad. Even though there was enough for four people, we ate it as our main meal and felt satisfied. Try to use organic and BPA-free canned items if possible, but no matter what, enjoy what mother nature has supplied.
