Super Detox Greens and Beans Salad

This salad combines the fresh bounty of zesty spring greens with a trio of beans for a filling, nourishing and uplifting lunch. It also makes a lovely and healthy side for dinner. Citrus and garlic add extra flavor and the cheese crumbles mellow it out wonderfully. You can substitute any wild or bitter greens that you have on hand and bring spring right into your kitchen! This salad tastes even better if you eat it outside on a warm day.

    Made this salad Sunday night for the coming week. We both tasted it, and agreed it was delicious! Only refinement I made was to use bitter greens (mustard and arugula).

    This salad is extremely refreshing and completely satisfying. I love that I can change out the spring salad mix, per availability, and make so many variations. This is super easy, especially for Lent, minus the feta and EVOO; just squeezed lemon over the top and good to go!!!! Looking forward to more salad recipes like this one!!!
