Bean Salad with Olives and Herbs Recipe

This salad came to my mind right as I was falling asleep.

Does your brain ever do crazy stuff like that? My best ideas seem to come when I’m about to doze off and don’t have a notebook or pen to write things down, so I just make a pact with my brain to remember. And the next day we both do our best to recall what we were thinking.

Thankfully, this one made it through the pipeline! Three cheers for my old lady brain still working!

I’ve made many a Bean salad before, but this one is special. This is the answer to the question, “What’s super cozy, flavorful and perfect for any BBQ Party?” It’s a great addition to any summer get together!

This Pakistani/Italian flavor pairing came to mind, and the recipe is adapted from my all-time favorite Bean Salad.   One super easy thing you can prep ahead is beans. I love beans because you can make them so many different ways and they’re packed with protein, slow-digesting carbohydrates and fiber. Their nutritional profile makes them ideal for prepping before a workout and recovering after a workout. If you’re trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, they’re great for that too since they make you feel full longer.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy beans during the warmer months is with my Bean Salad. It’s super easy to make and it tastes really yummy too! This recipe is simple, requiring just 10 minutes to prepare! You can eat it all on its own (what I normally do) or dress it up by adding some more chopped veggies to it. It’s also great added to some greens either in a wrap or in a salad.

The dressing is SO easy (and dreamy).

Italian herbs are blended with vinegar . Add olive oil water to thin and ‘voila!’ You have a super yummy, tangy Italian dressing ready to coat those gorgeous bean salad. Look at that salad goodness.

I hope you all LOVE this Bean salad! It’s:

  • Hearty
  • Flavorful
  • Vegetable-packed
  • Fiber- & Protein-rich
  • Tangy + Crunchy
  • Super healthy & Delicious

This would make the perfect side dish for BBQ Party, or any get together, really. It yields four entrée-sized portions or 8 sides, so multiply as needed. Although it’s delicious on its own, it would pair extremely well with my Grilled Lamb Chops, and my Grilled Italian Chicken.

Bismillah, let’s get started the recipe!!
