Brown Rice Salad

Can you really walk by the sample stand at Trader Joe's and not have a taste?  I can't!  And here was another treat that didn't disappoint.  Their salad had kidney beans, which were yummy and pretty!  I didn't have any in my pantry, so I used cannellini beans that they were delicious and creamy. 
I also added diced zucchini from my garden.

Inspired from Trader Joe’s sample stand!
Cooked brown rice
Beans (kidney or cannellini)
Diced zucchini
Balsamic vinaigrette
Slice scallions

Mix all ingredients together in the various quantities of your choice and dress with a balsamic vinaigrette. Simple and delicious!
