Greek Bean Salad

Everyday Cooking with Dr. Dean Ornish

  • Pinto beans replace the feta cheese in this variation on the classic Greek salad. Michelle Riley/The HSUS

Serves 4

One 15-ounce can (425g) of pinto or kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 medium cucumber (peeled, seeded, and diced)
1 medium fresh tomato (halved, seeded, and diced)
1/4 cup (60g) diced red onion
2 tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade
1/4 cup (60ml) bottled nonfat Italian salad dressing
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir to blend.

 Tip: The easiest way to chiffonade basil is to stack several leaves together, roll them up like a jelly roll, and then slice thinly across the roll. Always chiffonade basil at the last moment with a sharp knife to keep it from browning.
