Bean / Rice SALADS



with pineapple, pecans, celery and onion in a sweet sour maple curry vinaigrette!

Makes 5-1/2 cups

28 oz. can Vegetarian Baked Beans

8 oz. can sliced pineapple, drained and cut into small wedges

1 c. thinly sliced celery

1 c. thinly sliced sweet onion rings, cut into quarters

1 c. pecans, coarsely chopped

1/2 c. white vinegar

2 T. Balsamic vinegar

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1/4 c. sugar

1 t. mild curry powder

1 t. onion powder

1 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. maple flavoring

1 T. black strap molasses

lots of freshly ground black pepper

salt to taste

In large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Stir till well mixed. Transfer to covered container and refrigerate several hours before using.

Notes: You’ll never have another bean salad quite like this one. Talk about bold unusual flavors! Intensely exotic.

Serve as a condiment with any meal, or mix with salad greens, chilled pasta or chilled boiled and cut potatoes as main dish salads. You won’t be able to stop eating this salad right out of the container you stored it in, while at the same time wondering why. It’s so bad that it’s good. It makes an especially good potato salad. Mix half potatoes half bean salad. Nothing more is needed! It keeps well, refrigerated, for about a week.

CHANGING a few words doesn’t alter the DNA of the work. LIKE a mother knows her children no matter the alterations in appearance, I know my gift when I see it on someone else, even when portions are replaced with a poacher’s words. IF you receive the goods, you are as much a poacher of talent, words and images as the poacher who stole them – no matter the purpose. I am not free and you are making me less free by stealing my intellectual material and putting other peoples names to it. CHANGING A FEW WORDS PROVES YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIABLE. STEALING another person's intellectual material isn't flattery; it's stealing. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
