Mustard and honey dressing bean salad

I love this salad. It gives a good balance of everything. Good fat, good source of protein, carbohydrate and fibers. Plus it has great taste and full of color makes it even more interesting to eat. Mustard adds bit of spices to it so for those who like to eat spicy food here is a good meal replacement for you.
Try this salad on one of those nights when you are trying to watch your weight :).

Salad Dressing:
Whole mustard paste: 2 table spoon
Dijon mustard paste: 2 table spoon
Honey: 4 table spoon
Extra virgin olive oil: 2 table spoon
Freshly crushed pepper: 1/2 table spoon
Sea salt to taste

Serves: 2
Boiled red kidney beans:1/2cup
Salad leaves: 1 cup
Broccoli: 1cup
Grated carrot: 1/4 cup
Celery: 1/4 cup
Spring onions: 2
(add anything you like)

Mix all the salad dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well until it becomes a smooth paste.

Par boil broccoli and celery until it is little bit soft but crispy in taste. This will take 3-4 minutes boiling time in boiling water.

Add all the vegetables and beans in the salad dressing. Give it a good mix.
Add salad leaves on the serving plate.

Spread the salad over salad leaves on the serving plate.
Serve hot or cold.
