Cucumber salad with bean and parsley
Bean is a great source of protein. Some people think it is healthier than meat and if you want to get your protein, you should focus on bean, lentil, chickpeas and eggs. I don’t know about that. In my opinion everything best is somewhere in the middle. Meat could also be healthy for you, depending on what kind of meat is that and how it is cooked. If you eat once or twice a week meat, twice a week – fish and the other days other sources of protein, then I think you got the best diet. Don’t try to avoid any food in order to stay thin and healthy. It all depends on the food amount you take. For example, if you eat every day bean salad, you won’t feel very well, because your body needs a variety of foods and just one type of food. So, keep it simple, keep it in the middle.
That was an introduction to the really cool salad, which I made and I want to show you. Yes, it is all about bean…and cucumbers…and my very favorite parsley! Let me tell you something: these three ingredients go so damn well together, they are just the perfect team. 🙂 Fresh, but also heavy salad that you could use as lunch. And if you add some white cheese to it, you will be in heaven! (I just didn’t have any cheese by the time I made the salad. If I had, I would definitely use it!)
I know it will maybe sound strange, but I think this cucumber salad with bean would go super nice with boiled eggs. Weird combination for sure, but I just love mixing different foods, which are rich in protein. Try it out, if you are curious to see what the end result would be…
Here is the recipe for cucumber salad with bean and parsley. It couldn’t be easier than that. You could chop a tomato instead of cucumber, depending on your personal taste and depending on what you have in the fridge. 🙂
Don’t forget to experiment and finally don’t forget to enjoy!
