Both of my kids are not overly fond of mayonnaise; however, Gab will eat it on occasion in certain salads and lightly smeared on bread when eating a turkey sandwich. Which is why I find it very odd that one of her favorite salads to eat is this Ceci Bean Salad. 

Ceci Bean Salad


There is a Japanese Hibachi restaurant not far from our home where we like to go out to eat once in a while that serves this type of salad on their salad bar. She always makes me get some on my plate for her to eat and has been begging me for years to make it at home.

I finally got around to making it for her recently and she loved it. As you can see, it’s a very simple recipe with little ingredients. In fact, at first I didn’t even use vinegar until she said it was missing something and she was right. It definitely added that little extra “zing” it was missing. ~Enjoy!

    Carrie,
    This looks so light and pretty! I wonder if I can get my kids to like beans this way? How do you think it would be with rice wine vinegar? (I use white vinegar in my laundry and would rather grab the little bottle of rice wine than try and measure out a teaspoon from the giant jug in the basement)

    Thanks!

      It is Kirsten and I don’t see why rice wine vinegar wouldn’t work. It’s such a little amount just to give it a little “zing”. I’m sure it will be fine. I was surprised when my youngest actually ate it at the restaurant, let alone loves it, but I guess like everything else they have to try it to see.

    I don’t blame her. This is a great salad. I make a variation of it frequently but I use lemon juice instead of vinegar.

      That would be good too, I’ll have to try that next time. Thanks Anita!
