Happy Tuesday bloggies.

I've got a yummy and really healthy recipe for you today. It was inspired by a salad I saw at our local grocery store but there are two big differences between them: 1. This one doesn't contain ROCKS and 2. I'm sure it's much healthier because it doesn't include a heavy sauce on it.

Rocks? Yeah, rocks. There I was the other day just minding my own biz eating the salad when I bit down on a rock {ouch!} and broke it in two {and am lucky I still have my teeth!}. It was terrible! End result? Kroger, where I bought it, is sending me a $15.00 gift card to make up for it. Hmmmm.... I won't mention that the manager didn't even apologize either..I won't do it...

Anyways...so I was determined to clean this recipe up a bit by only using lemon juice (you can use red wine vinegar too!) and it's delicious. The combination of ingredients in this salad is so refreshing and tasty!

+1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
+1/2 cup chickpeas. rinsed and drained
+1/4 cup cilantro, diced
+1/2 red pepper, diced
+1/2 yellow pepper, diced
+1/4 red onion, diced really small
+3/4 cup edamame (cooked and without the shells)
+Lemon juice, to taste
+Sea salt, to taste

optional: red wine vinegar

Okay so when I made this, I didn't really measure anything, so if these measurements are off just adjust them to your taste or how much you need at the time. Do you like black beans more than chickpeas? Use more black beans. I just threw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, and let marinate in the refrigerator for a bit...so easy and sometimes I just don't want to get all serious and measure things out. ;)

The best part is you can just make enough for 2 people or use more of the ingredients if you're serving at a party or cookout. Get busy and make this!

PS: Not sure if I have any Oklahoma readers out there, but wanted to send my thoughts and prayers out to your state. Hugs. hugs. hugs. during this difficult time.



  1. This looks SO yummy! I'm in need of some healthy lunch ideas and this would be perfect! :) Also, I feel like you should be getting a lil more than $15-frickin-dollars for eating a ROCK! What the heck?!

  2. Yum! I'm totally making this asap! Thanks for sharing. And that is SO scary that there was a rock in your salad!!!! Yikes!

  3. I follow you from Oklahoma, but live about 2 hours NE of Moore. It is a very sad state right now and we are asking to be lifted up in prayer for healing and recovery. We have recovered from this before and we will do it again! Thank you so much for your kind words. They are always much appreciated.

  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I think this would make such a good lunch for throughout the week!

  5. Hey hey sweet girl! How do you think this would be with a 1/2 cup of corn and maybe some brown rice mixed in?? Call me crazy, but if you topped this over some chopped romaine, you might have yourself something very Chipotle-esque. No??? ;)

    Hope you have a fabulous day!
