3 Bean Citrus Salad

Meatless Dinner

I discovered a really good meatless meal!  I actually found the main recipe on the back of the pasta box.  The pasta is Ancient Grains Pasta by Ronzoni Healthy Harvest.  It was super easy to prepare!

I served this main dish with baked crispy chicken strips for the rest of my family.

I also sauteed fresh, local zucchini by slicing it and then halving it, adding a half of a chopped sweet onion, and a cup of chopped fresh tomatoes.  I used a bit of coconut oil to sautee them.  Normally I would have sprinkled the entire dish with a bit of Parmesan cheese but we were all out of it.

I also had a bowl of fresh blackberries and blueberries.

I put out some leftover fresh corn off the cob too for my daughters.

This meal was a hit!


1 box of the ancient grain pasta, cooked according to directions
1 c. fresh green beans
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz) can of great northern beans, rinsed and drained
(note: I used the low-sodium beans for both)
1/2 c. citrus vinaigrette
1/2 c. scallions, chopped 
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped

  • Prepare the pasta and rinse in cold water.  Set aside after draining well.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the beans.
  • Add the pasta, parsley and scallions and toss together.
  • Add the vinaigrette and toss well.

as with all of my recipes under the faithfixes label, you do have permission to copy this post.
