    Default BBQ


    Going down to my DD's house to bbq in the sunshine today. I'm
    bringing this bean salad, but haven't settled on what combination of
    herbs I'll use yet - I have lots to choose from in the garden. I
    don't think that it will make 6 cups total either unless I add some
    vegetables like zucchini, cucumber and/or tomatoes to it. I started
    off with more than a cup's worth of dried (small white) beans, but in
    my experience beans don't expand 6 times when cooked.

    White Beans with Bacon, Avocado and Herbs
    http://www.healthyseasonalrecipes.co...and-herbs.html

    Makes 6 cups

    1 cup dried cannellini beans, sorted
    5 scallions, sliced
    5 slices bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
    2 avocados, diced
    3 tablespoons chopped mixed herbs such as oregano, parsley and/or
    Yerba Buena
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper

    1. Place beans in a large bowl and cover generously with water. Allow
    to sit on the counter 8 hours or up to 1 day. Drain and rinse. Place
    beans in a large saucepan and fill the pot with water. Bring to a boil
    and then simmer until the beans are tender, 30 minutes to 1 hour
    depending on the beans.

    2. Meanwhile, combine scallions, bacon, avocado, herbs, vinegar, olive
    oil, salt and white pepper in a large mixing bowl.

    3. When the beans are tender drain and add them to the avocado
    mixture. Toss to coat. Transfer to a serving dish.

    That sounds delicious. Tomatoes would be a nice addition. I would
    use lots of fresh parsley.

    Agreed, BOR-RING! Needs a little hot sauce. Only one type of bean...
    and why bother soaking and cooking when canned beans are so easy and
    cost less than dried. I'd have opened 3-4 different canned beans...
    added some corn niblets, and diced bell peppers of various colors, and
    diced tomatoes... the avocado doesn't belong in that mixture.

    Yes! I used plum tomatoes and red onions, not scallions. I ended up
    using cilantro for the herb. The vinaigrette was EVOO and lime with a
    little garlic, s&p of course.
