Tuesdays At The Table - Bean & Greens Salad

Happy Tuesday, ladies!!  (For those of you reading this Monday night - you still have time to enter my mystery giveaway; it closes at midnight!)  Did anyone else get the powerful thunderstorms that Boston did?  Can I admit that I was secretly hoping the power would go out?

Warmer weather is coming...and this week I'm sharing a lighter dish.  I just love a good salad during the summer.  :-)
(This week's recipe comes from the Land O Lakes "Simply Spring" magazine.)

Beans & Greens Salad

1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup vinaigrette or Italian dressing
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
1/4 cup sliced green onion
4 cups baby spinach
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 oz provolone or mozzarella cheese, cubed

Combine beans, dressing and lime zest.  Stir well and refridgerate until well chilled (and ready to use).  Before serving, stir in remaining ingredients.
