So I hooked up this Mediterranean Vegetable and Bean Salad Recipe to go alongside this Mediterranean Grilled Rack of Lamb Lollipops Recipe and dang was it awesome. My wife actually doesn’t like lamb (I know…) but put some roasted sliced chicken in it and she absolutely love it! It’s really easy to make and literally would be a great side to any main dish. In addition if you wanted to step it up even more, try adding some cherry tomatoes, olives and capicola or salami! So the next time you are struggling to come up with a great side dish, try this Mediterranean Vegetable and Bean Salad Recipe.
