Hi! Ameera here!
If you love Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, then you are going to love this tasty bean salad! It is delicious, healthy, and wonderful for making tasty sandwiches or wraps.
I love how this recipe comes together quickly and hits the dinner table fast. Whether you have some extra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus from our recipe or you bought some at the store (WFPB compliant), this dish is awesome when you are in a pinch and need something fast to put together.
Plus, it’s visually appealing which helps with transitioning kids (including BIG kids – LOL) over to the Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle. YAY!
I love making lettuce wraps. Bib lettuce works really well for making wraps or lettuce cups. I love to pack it full of delicious bean salad and chow down. Plus you can really have your fill of them since they are so healthy for you. Mom enjoys eating them like lettuce cups too, while my dad likes to make BIG sandwiches (“sangwiches” = Italian pronunciation). 🙂
My dad can really pound the food. I don’t know where he puts it all. He made two sandwiches and was also eating lettuce wraps as well. LOL
You’re going to what?
When mom and I were washing the dishes, and cleaning up, my dad said “I am going to get out the whiffer and whiffer the floor.” Me and mom looked at each other, then we both said simultaneously “You are going to do what to the floor?” He said “I am going to whiffer it! You know use the whiffer!” Then my mom said “Ohhhh, you mean you are going to get out the SWIFFER and swiffer the floor!” He said “Yeah, that – swiffer it!”
Another Daddyism – LOL!!! My dad is notorious for mixing up words. I just had to share the latest “Daddyism” with you all. We all had a great laugh!
We just love this bean salad and we hope you love it too!
“Whiffer” the floor! I almost peed my pants on this one. I don’t know where TP109 comes up with these things.
I love this bean salad, but what I really love is that we can use the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus as a dressing to create another lovely dish. It worked so perfectly. I loved having the tiny crunchy bits of red pepper to perfectly accent the red pepper hummus.
Using yummy bib lettuce cups made a beautiful presentation for the dinner table, even TP remarked that they looked super yummy and couldn’t wait to dive in.
