i have a kid who gags at beans (and peas, always has) she loves this salad, have it with roast beef, steak or squid

Is this seriously over 600 calories?

Tastes great. The dressing is lovely. I added a little more chili for an extra kick. Not a beans lover myself but this was really nice. Kids liked it too. Easy way to eat some healthy pulses.
