Tuesday Tidbit

Well Tuesday has come back around again, and it is time for a little "tidbit" of information to brighten your world. This week the Pink Haired Momma is providing you with an exceptional recipe any momma can appreciate. This recipe is from one of my favorite Food Network Stars, Guy Fieri.

The recipe is quite well placed now as we venture into the hot summer months. This meal can provide happiness to everyone. It is vegetarian friendly and provides a fabulous punch of protein. It is a cold serve salad and is so refreshing with each bite, that you find yourself shivering with anticipation for the next bite.
I have now served this to several guests and to my family several times and they have quickly placed it at the top of the "please make" for me list. I also recently provided a dear friend of mine with this recipe as an impromptu addition to a surprise dinner guest arrival. She served it with fresh grilled fish and said it was a superb combination.

**Oh and the best part...there is no cooking at all. It is an easy open and mix chill and serve dish that will bring about all kinds of OOOO's and AHHHH's.**
It can be served alone or coupled with another dish.

Here are the ingredients and directions:

4 Bean Relish

1/3 cup red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 cup scallions, sliced
3/4 cup red onions, finely diced
1/4 cup peppadew peppers (sweet red peppers) or roasted red bell peppers, finely diced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons honey
1 (12-ounce) can white beans, drained
1 (12-ounce) can chick peas, garbanzo beans, drained
1 (12-ounce) can pinto beans, drained
1 (12-ounce) can black beans, drained

Mix all ingredients together and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour for the flavors to blend. Mix thoroughly before service.
Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy
and please let Pink Haired Momma know your thoughts on this delicious dish!!
