Add everything to the beans and gently mix.
Top Tips For Making
- We used a white onion for our salad, but you can definitely try a red one. Red onions are a little sweeter and also great raw!
- If your tomato isn’t at peak ripeness, you can either add a little pineapple juice to help mimic the acidity of a ripe tomato, or you can salt your slices and let them sit out for about 30 minutes.
- If you are a strict gluten free diet, make sure your dijon mustard doesn’t contain any wheat or wheat by-products.
What Do We Mean By “Healthy?”
Our recipes focus on real ingredients and homemade elements. We try to avoid processed flour and sugar, like white flour or white sugar. Our recipes often swap less healthy options (like a commercial, deep-friend tostada) for an easy homemade version.
Our recipes are not necessarily low fat or low calorie, and we aren’t afraid of fat or carbs! Some of our recipes will be “skinny,” low carb, keto, paleo, dairy free, grain free, gluten free, Whole30, or vegan, and they will be labeled when they qualify for any of these diets. All our recipes are easy and family friendly!
