Lobia salad / Black Eye bean Salad


This easy to make salad with lots of rainbow-hued veggies, all combined together with a super fresh lime-honey-butter dressing. It’s the kind of fresh, healthy salad you’ll find suitable with soups or to be stuffed into the hearty sandwiches to satisfy your cravings in between the meals
Lobia or black eye beans are cooked quite often in my kitchen in one or the other form. Lobia curry with rice is such a dish we can’t resist ourselves to have quite often. But the salad also is satisfying especially in winters when I get a little lazier to cook much,  then this warm lobia beans with seasonal veggies with a warm butter dressing becomes a real deal for me. The process is as simple as these beans look. A quick boiling of soaked beans and blanching of broccoli is needed and then mixing with some other fresh vegetables and a delightful dressing with crunchy flax seeds and…its done with a bowl of health in hands
