If you like Wasabi and Ginger, try this: Napa Cabbage Slaw with Wasabi-Ginger Dressing

I'm glad you like the wasabi dressing!

Shhhh. My husband, the one who doesn't eat leftovers, thinks that restaurants cook everything fresh when he orders it. LOL I don't want him to know, because they I will have to cook, every night!

The name of this thread reminds me of a sort-of-Spanish question I once heard: Como esta frijole? -- How have you bean?

I totaly forgot another salad with beans, taco salad!

Make your favorite tossed salad with lettuce, cukes, tomatoes, celery, onion, and carrots. Brown a pound of ground beef, seasoned with salt, peppers, cumin, and chili powder to taste. Drain and chill in the fridge. Grate 1/2 lb. sharp cheddar cheese. Add ground beef to the salad, tossing to distribute the meat. Drain and rince 15 oz. can of kidney beans and mix into the salad. Fold in the grated cheese. Top with crushed tortilla chips and modified Russian salad dressing, or whatever salad dressing you love.

Modified Russian Dressing - I cheat here. I use store-bought salad dressing as the base. Empty 1 bottle of your favorite Russian salad dressing into a bowl. Mix in 1 tbs. chili powder. Put back into the original container (with a funnel) and let sit for a half hour. Enjoy.

The best bean salad ever

You need to add different staff so that people can be interested in eating your bean salad. You can add on some green peppers,carrots that are finely chopped and some tomatoes and see how it taste.

My husband is no cook but he likes a bean salad that he calls weight watchers salad. He combines green beans, wax beans, and kidney beans in a bowl with chopped onion and a bottle of low Cal Italian salad dressing. He lets it marinate in the fridge overnight. He seems to enjoy it.

You can bring back seeds across the border into Canada? I have always been under the impression that you can't bring them into the U.S. and would think the same rule applies in reverse. Or is this a 'if you don't tell, I won't tell'. I just know if I tried to bring something, anything, across I would get caught.
