Bean & Noodle Salad


Combine the noodles, beans, vegetables and parsley in a mixing bowl and set aside. (If using frozen veggies, steam these first).

In a smaller bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour this dressing over the salad, tossing well to coat completely.

Marinate in an airtight container in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the fridge at least one hour before serving, and toss lightly when ready to serve.

1 can beans (drained and rinsed)

1/2 cup sliced spring onions
