Navy Beans Salad Recipe – This navy Beans Salad is very healthy, quick salad idea. Made with Parsley & all healthy ingredients. Perfect vegan salad for the whole family to enjoy
Growing up, we always ate navy beans in a tomato gravy and then put on top of toast.
If I never ate another navy bean in my life, I would have never complained!
Growing up, we had a lot of British influence when it came to food. We used to call French fries “Chips” and potato chips were “Crisps”.
“Beans on Toast” was not appetizing at all.
When I left home, I dropped navy beans out of my diet completely.
For 20 years, I never at it and I never missed it.
So, you are wondering why I have a recipe featuring these
repulsive healthy beans?
