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.
Bean-Pasta Salad with Avocado-Sesame Dressing:
1/2 package bean pasta, dry (boil it to cook)
1/4 red onion, chopped
handful of grape tomatoes, quartered
big handful of kale leaves, chopped up
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 clove garlic
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp miso
Blend all ingredients in a blender/hand immersion blender.
Toss salad. Boom.
