At my first perusal, I saw this salad and right away knew I had to make it. I had everything except for an avocado in my fridge.
But here it is with notes as to what we did:
Quick and Easy Lemon and Dill Bean Saladtwo 15.5 oz cans of beans, rinsed (equal to 3 cups) (I just used garbanzo, aka chick peas, as that was all I had)
1 medium tomato, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
4 celery ribs, chopped
1 T olive oil
1/2 T lemon juice
cilantro, dill and pepper, all to taste
8-10 cups greens of your choice (I used spinach; they say also arugula or kale)
1 cup broccoli (I had none in)
1/2-1 cup blueberries
1/2 c walnuts (I used pecans)
1. In a bowl mix together all of the main ingredients.
2. Add in cilantro, dill and pepper, all to taste.
3. Put the greens and any or all of the optional ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in the bean mixture. Serve.
I've been a bit otherwise occupied for the past few days, so I haven't been sewing as much. My daughter, Brianne, and my beloved grandson, Brady, are here from Alberta for a 10-day visit. Yesterday we went cruising on the Detroit River in our boat. What a great way to spend a few hours on a very hot and steamy sunny afternoon. We were cool cats though... Brady especially.
Last Fall when I visited them, Brady "commissioned" this quilt:
|Jack in the Box quilt|
|Tentative layout, evening of September 7|
Think I may have mentioned that I work well under pressure...
Here it is from last night; a few tweaks occurred:
I'm making it bigger, as it is only a 32" wallhanging with the 9 blocks. I plan to add two or three borders so he should have a lap quilt about 40X48. They are here for another week, but we are busy doing stuff every day.
Wish me luck!
