Salad with slow cooker red beans and rice
Last night I had just enough time to chop the veggies for this yummy crock pot meal so that it would be all ready to go in the morning (click here for the easy-peasy beans and rice recipe). Kristin at Slender Kitchen suggests cooking on low for 6-8 hours and ours was definitely ready at the sixth hour. I found this tasty Cajun dressing to go along with a simple side salad. Here’s my modified ingredient list for two (with a little left over):
Cajun Salad Dressing
- 1/3 c. pecans sautéed in Earth Balance butter, sprinkled w/ Cajun seasoning and salt
- splash of red wine vinegar
- 2 spoonfuls olive oil
- squeeze of Dijon mustard
- glob of honey
- 1/4 c. water
- pinch cayenne pepper
Blend together in food processor until creamy. Enjoy over greens!
