SIDE NOTES:

~ From “Fresh Food Fast”

~ Very easy to throw together & delicious. I get sick of the same old salad all the time. I cut the recipe in half & devoured the whole thing myself for lunch.

~ Arugula is a peppery type of lettuce, it’s got a kick to it. I don’t bother chopping it up, I just remove the stems.

~ Over the past year, I’ve gotten used to using dried beans & soaking/cooking myself. However, I don’t stick to it religiously, as I often want to just throw something together on the fly.  If using canned, I recommend a high quality product such as Eden.

 For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:
