"Cumin used to be one of my least favorite spices...until I found the magical combination of it with lemon. It truly is a party in your mouth, and will have your taste buds dancing! I've made many versions of this bean salad, so am posting a version where you can create it to whatever tickles your fancy at the time. This can easily be made Vegan or Vegetarian with the same spectacular flavors. Enjoy and have fun making and eating it! This is a Freddy Cat choose-your-own adventure recipe."
Toss beans, cilantro or parsley, and your additions together. *Most recently, I used 3 cans of cannellini beans, 1 cup cilantro, double the dressing (which was more than enough), and the following additions: 3 carrots, 1 red bell pepper, 1 small red onion, grape tomatoes, whole small green pimento stuffed olives and cubed feta cheese. Yummo!
Whisk dressing ingredients together.
Stir dressing into bean mix. Can serve right away, or let sit for the flavors to meld more.
Serve and enjoy! You can also serve this atop or wrapped in lettuce leaves.
