This simple and nutritious salad has been high on my list of food cravings since giving birth to my son 5 weeks ago. For some reason I've craved beans & legumes a lot! In addition to cheese and coffee...I think the latter is from the sleep deprivation though. ;-) These days I'm all about make ahead recipes and this one travels well for those on the go. I oftentimes devour this with a spoon! Olives are a great source of healthy fat and peppadew peppers offer a punch of flavor. Hope you enjoy!
