Busy Season Easy Meals

Sep 07, 2015 02:40AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features Food, Family Features



(Family Features) The busy season has arrived. It’s that time when we’re more likely to skip a meal, or just nibble without much thought about what we’re eating because there seems to be no time to prep a meal.

Good news. Making a tasty, quick meal just got a lot easier with individual serving cups of READ 3 Bean Salad. Convenient, one serving portions of this homemade-style bean medley require no refrigeration so they are always ready. Simply pull the seal off the top of the cup and eat. 

Stash them in a desk drawer, or toss them in the lunch box. At home, keep them on hand in the pantry or chilled in the refrigerator. The classic green, wax and kidney bean combination in a sweet-tangy dressing makes the perfect jump-start for all kinds of salads, and is especially convenient when making a meal for one or two.

Five-ingredient Quick Italian Bean Salad is just one example. Chopped tomatoes and cooked chicken, a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan and some Italian seasoning or fresh basil plus a cup of bean salad make a main dish in minutes. No chicken? What about cooked shrimp, deli ham or sliced salami? Any of these could substitute.

Use your imagination for other delicious combos. Leftovers are a perfect place to start. If there’s pasta, toss with the bean salad for the quickest pasta salad ever. Add that smidge of pesto in the fridge for an instantly different flavor profile. Make a speedy antipasto by topping the cup with some tapenade and serving with thinly sliced prosciutto and breadsticks. Salad greens on hand? Just toss the beans and greens, then dig in.
