Ingredients
  

  • 2.5 cups of bean medley — or a 19 oz can of any beans
  • ½ finely chopped English cucumber
  • ¼ cup finely diced chives or green onion
  • cup olives + 1 tablespoon olive juice — any olives you like
  • finely chopped parsley or cilantro to taste⠀⠀⠀

The Dressing:⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1-2 teaspoons agave maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard — or leave it out if allergic

Instructions
 

  • Add beans to a bowl.
  • Finely chop and dice the cucumber and chives.
  • Add it to the beans with the olives and the olive juice.
  • You can now add all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small mason jar or even a bowl. Shake it well if you’re using a mason jar or whisk it if you use a bowl.
  • Pour it on top, and feel free to garnish with parsley or cilantro. Enjoy

Notes

I love adding feta to this but feel free to play around with it. Roasted corn kernels would be lovely as well. Feel free to leave out the dijon mustard if you are allergic. If you don’t like it, I promise you won’t taste it. You can buy a medley of beans in a bag and soak one cup overnight in water. Boil them the next day until tender or you can use a can as well. Feel free to use any beans do you love. I love using a medley of beans for different colour and texture. If you want to use this recipe for meal prep please leave the dressing on the side
