I told the checkout lady at the grocery store I was making beluga.
“You mean… like… the whale?” she said.
Tip: Don’t confuse the words balela and beluga.
This salad is amazing. I’ve been buying it at Trader Joe’s for the past few months, but it’s a little expensive… and I eat the whole container in one sitting. This is a spot-on dupe for the TJ variety.
Eat salads. Not whales.
2 (15oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 (15oz) cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2C red onion, diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced fine
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2C mint, chopped
1/2C flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/4C olive oil
3T lemon juice
5T apple cider vinegar
In a bowl, combine beans, red onion, tomato, garlic, jalapeno, mint, and parsley. In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, and vinegar. Toss salad with dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking – I think it tastes best with extra lemon juice. Enjoy!
