Black Bean and Green Chili Salad

Photobucket

I didn't feel like going to the store for groceries today, so the 15-year-old girl and I scrounged through my mother's kitchen cabinets and came up with this dinner...

The strawberry preparation is simple. Just wash well, and remove the greens...

The asparagus preparation is simple as well. Just wash asparagus and saute in butter, then add salt...

Just make sure your brother doesn't eat half of them before they are served...

To make the salad, round up the following ingredients...

6 cups of spring greens
15 oz can of black beans (about 2 cups)
1 small can of chopped green chili (about 1/2 cups)
1 cup of cubed gouda cheese
6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
Ranch dressing (for an awesome homemade recipe from an amazing lady, go HERE)
Flax seeds

Toss first five ingredients...

...then serve with dressing and sprinkle on flax seeds...

...and if you're really lucky, you'll be having a good hair day when you serve this. This is a rare occurrence, so I am sharing, and this is the best shot I could get...

Thanks for listening.
