Veggie and Bean Salad- 148 calories

I adapted this recipe from one my favorite cookbooks, Pretty Delicious. I changed up some of the ingredients but kept the dressing which is amazing . It is not often that my husband does this, but he exclaimed after one bite of this “you need to put this in your blog” so this one is for you Chris. I made this with my Garlic Sage Roasted Chicken and my Homemade Mac and Cheese.

No cooking involved for this, it holds well and is very easy. Have a potluck soon? Make this, it is easy and travels very well!
