Bean Salad with Dijon Dressing – Gluten-Free

Here we are again being inundated with ads for rich desserts and treats.  This time it’s for Valentines, which I’m all for, naturally, but aren’t there some other desirable gifts besides candy and jewelry?

Chocolate candy may be rich in antioxidants, but it’s also usually rich in sugar and calories that I don’t really need to focus on right now.  Instead I’m concentrating on one of my favorite lunches, a salad with beans, crisp veggies and a little Dijon dressing.

Maybe we’ll talk about chocolate later….
