Mixed greens and beans salad with ume dressing

OK. I would hardly call this a “recipe” because it’s too simple to make. But please understand that I am a 55 year old male and “survivalist cook” who can barely make anything. Yesterday I cooked a potato for the first time in my life, and had to look up how on the Internet.

Serves 1:
  • One individual sized package of cut lettuce with sliced bell pepper mix.
  • One cucumber (a small, thin cucumber – not a giant one like in the U.S.).
  • One medium tomato.
  • One can of mixed beans (120 gm).
  • 4 T of non-oil ume (pickled plum) dressing.

Mix everything and eat. Extremely tasty and filling. The legumes give you that “protein satisfied” feeling. Only 219 calories and much less than 10% calories from fat. Be a little cautious in your dressing selection or you can end up with something relatively high in sodium.

I’ve attached a photo. Looks good, doesn’t it?
