Mediterranean Lamb and Bean Salad Recipe

Mediterranean Lamb and Bean Salad Recipe

This savory salad combines lamb, artichokes, beans and feta cheese with a tangy dressing. "It's also good with chicken or beef in place of the lamb," notes Lora Winckler of Sunnyside, Washington.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless leg of lamb
  • 2 jars (6-1/2 ounces each) marinated artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups frozen cut green beans, thawed
  • 1/2 cup julienned sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese, optional

Directions

  • 1. Grill lamb, covered, over medium heat for 10-20 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Cut into cubes.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the lamb, artichokes, kidney beans, green beans, red pepper and onion. In a small bowl, whisk the salad dressing, vinegar and pepper; pour over salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Serve with feta cheese if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
