Honey-Balsamic Bean Salad

    8 oz / 225 g (about 1 1/2 cups) EACH cooked chickpeas, pinto beans, black beans

    1 small head of romaine lettuce, washed, dried, shredded

    1/3 cup / 1 oz / 30g sliced almonds, toasted

    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 tablespoons runny honey
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/4+ teaspoon fine grain sea salt

    10 sprigs fresh thyme

Combine the beans, lettuce, and most of the almonds in a large salad bowl. Set aside. Make the dressing by whisking the olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and sea salt in a small container. Taste, and adjust to your tastes.

Run your fingers up each thyme sprig, removing the leaves. Add to the salad bowl along with a good amount of the dressing. Toss well, and add more dressing if you like. Finish by sprinkling with the remaining almonds.

Serves 4- 6.
