Add Beans to Your Summer Menu

Hot summer days call for simple suppers with refreshing flavors like lemon and mint. Keep a jar of homemade mint vinaigrette dressing in your refrigerator and plenty of canned beans on hand. That way you’ll always be able to create a fast summer meal in minutes.

Combine a can of rinsed beans with chopped scallions, carrots and celery. You can also add cooked grains like quinoa or barley if you like. Then dress to taste with mint vinaigrette. Get the recipe here.
