Okay, here's my first contribution to the FoodFit healthy recipes thread.

If you eat a lot of green salads like me, you can sometimes get bored after a while.

One of my favorite alternatives is to make salads with other ingredients as a base: quinoa, barley, celery (yes, I have a healthy buffabo chicken celery salad that tastes surprisingly great) and one of my all-time favorites: beans.

So here's my uber healthy version of the classic three bean salad that I based off from a local Italian joint's free appetizer. It's got loads of fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals and uses only healthy fats. It also skips the usual sugar that you'll find in traditional recipes. Would love to have people test drive it an let me know what they think. Drop me comments, feedback and suggestions here or even better ... on my site.

The recipe (along with complete nutritional info) can be found here:

Enjoy!
