Simple salad for evening snacks



Every day I struggle to find out a good and health snack in the evening for hubby dear. Finding healthy and tasty snack is a real difficult task. Salad is always the best. However, making salad tastier is a tough job to me. On the top of that my hubby doesn’t like all the leaves. So, lettuce, spinach, arugula should not be there. So, apart from cucumber and tomato what ingredients I can use to make the salad tasty? One day I bought black-eyed beans from market and I thought to use in salad. I love the taste of black-eyed beans, but I didn’t know about my hubby. One day, I prepared salad with that, and my hubby liked that very mach. From that day I prepare black-eyed bean salad very often.

Ingredients:

½ cup black eyed beans

1 /2 tomato

1-2 cucumbers

1 avocado

Salt and black pepper powder to taste

1 tsp. olive oil (optional)

Tortilla chips (optional)

Method:

Soak the beans in water for six hours. Pressure cooked the bean with salt up to one whistle. Do not overcook the beans. Let it cool down. Meanwhile cut avocado, cucumber, tomato into small pieces. Mix all the ingredients. Sever with tortilla chips or the simple salad.
