Cold Pasta/Potato/Rice/Bean Salad

(great ‘Resistant Starch’ recipe)

Make a vinaigrette of the following, modify with what you have on hand,  or simply use 1/2 C of  your fave oil/vinegar salad dressing

1 garlic clove (pressed/crushed)

1/4 t black peppercorns

1/2 t dried tarragon (or thyme or oregano)

grated zest of 1 lemon

1 large finely diced shallot or 1/4 C thinly sliced green onion

1/3 C olive oil

2 T+  vinegar (taste the dressing once mixed – you may want more acid)

salt to taste

Put it all in a lidded jar and shake it up baby!

3-4 cups of cooked and cooled pasta, potatoes, rice, lentils, or canned white cannellini beans.

1 C chopped fresh veggies such as carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, celery for some crunch and color. – Your choice.

Then pour some of it over the veggies and starch and toss it up until everything is well dressed. You’ll probably have extra dressing – keep it in the fridge.
