Bean Pasta Salad

I’ve been doing mini-catering jobs round these parts, and it’s great because I make things with ingredients that are food fears for me.  I make extra so that I challenge myself with them.  This salad is pretty scary for me with the pasta, although it’s made of only beans (that’s literally it), but so is the dressing.  I saved some dressing for myself. Some challenges are bigger than others.

1/4 red onion, chopped
handful of grape tomatoes, quartered
big handful of kale leaves, chopped up

1/2 avocado
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 clove garlic
juice of 1/2 lemon
black pepper
1 tbsp miso
Blend all ingredients in a blender/hand immersion blender.

Toss salad. Boom.
