Spring White Bean, Radish and Arugula Salad with Herbs

Spring White Bean, Radish and Arugula Salad with Herbs
(Serves 2)

Arugula is one the healthiest foods on the planet. This often-overlooked weed is one of the best sources of naturally occurring nitrates, which boost nitric oxide levels in the blood, leading to improved performance, reduced blood pressure, and a decreased risk of stroke and heart attacks.

Pro Tip: Combining BCAAs with nitrate rich dishes guarantees best results from your daily workouts! Better workouts = Healthier You!

Yes, I want BCAAs to fuel my workouts!

If you consume several portions of nitrates a day in addition to micronutrient-rich vegetables and fruits, you’ll significantly increase your chances of living a long and full life! With that in mind, we have a true superfood recipe for you today, one that combines a cup of nitrate-rich arugula with beans, heart-healthy olive olive, and a little dill and mint for good measure.

1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (about 2 cups cooked beans)
1 bunch radish, green tops removed, thinly sliced (about 5-6 radishes)
1 cup arugula
¼ cup
chopped dill
2 tbsp chopped mint
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper

In a mixing bowl, add the beans, radish, arugula, dill, mint, lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Toss to combine and coat everything in the dressing. Add more salt or lemon juice, to taste.
Serve topped with almonds and more pepper.

This is a hearty salad that can be enjoyed as a meal on its own. Alternatively, you can use the recipe above to create a few small side dishes to serve with your choice of protein. It will go great with fish or even with a lean chicken breast, but non-meat eaters can also try slicing half an avocado, adding a drizzle of oil, a pinch of salt and a squirt of lemon juice, and serving this with a piece of tofu.
