One roast - 3 meals (continued)

Good news!  I am out of payroll tax return purgatory with a couple days to spare.

This is a continuation of my using 1 roast I bought on sale to make 3 meals with no wasted left overs.

Beef Pilaf Salad
2 cups chopped beef roast
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup cooked brown rice, (cooked the night before)
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 small apple chopped
1 small carrot chopped
1/2 c. celery chopped
1/2 small yellow bell pepper from a previous dish chopped
1 small can of sliced black olives
3/4 cup Paul Newman oil and vinegar dressing.

Combine ingredients and chill.

Let's just say that Husband didn't eat a ton of this, so it's my lunch this week, 'cause I like it.  He's not really a dinner salad guy.  He is more a meat and potatoes type of guy.  Thanks for not complaining, dear.  It was an experiment.

  1. Love this! Everyone like to do pasta salads, but I am always on the look-out for rice based salads. It's easier to get my hubs to eat them than pasta..... - although they usually end up being for lunch, too. ;-))
