Simple salad

It's going to be a short and sweet post today. Right to the point. What you see is what you get.
It's healthy. It's yummy. It's quick to make. It requires no cooking. And did I mention that it's yummy?

It's a salad packed with good-for you things.

  • 1 can of beans of your choice (I used a mix) rinsed under cold water.
  • 1 ear of corn, cooked, shaved
  • 2 stalks of celery, cubed
  • 10-15 cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
  • a handful of sliced olives, black or green
  • a handful of pickled pearl onions, halved
  • a bunch of parsley (curly) washed and chopped
  • a few splashes of olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zest and juiced
  • a couple pinches of sea salt 
Mix everything together and let sit for about 30 minutes. Ta-da!

Serve with some grilled chicken on top, or with a sandwich if you like. I was content eating it as is. Simply happy food :)
