Curried Bean Salad

Curried Bean Salad


  • 3 cups cooked beans - i used equal amounts pebble beans and mayacoba beans, but you could certainly use white beans, black beans, black eyed beans, whatever - i bet edamame would be great in this salad. and while i like to cook my beans from their dried state, this is a forgiving salad and canned beans that have been well rinsed will work too. you can serve this salad hot or at room temperature, whatever your preference.
  • 1 cup cooked black lentils*
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced into crescents
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fine-grain sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of your favorite curry powder
  • 1-2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger (from 1-inch cube of fresh ginger, peeled)
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
