Two Beans and a Beet Salad

How would you like to throw a bag of vegetables in the microwave, open up two cans and drain, and have a fabulous salad ready in less than 10 minutes?  This salad is colorful, delicious, and has a balanced mix of protein, carbohydrate, and fat.  So if you don’t end up cooking anything else for dinner, you don’t have to lose any sleep over it.

The salad tastes even better the next day, although the beets stain the white beans so that they’re pink.  Besides the stain factor, this salad would make a great dish for any picnic.  And I do believe it’s finally time for those fun summer picnics!
