3 celery sticks

2 cups small broccoli pieces (or sub green beans)

1/2 red onion sliced thinly

1/2 cup pitted kalmata olives sliced in half

1/4 cup basil chopped

1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped

1/4 lemon juice

1-2 tablespoons olive oil (I like lemon olive oil) optional

1 can (2 cups) kidney beans rinsed (or bean of choice)

Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Place potatoes in a steamer over boiling water cover and let steam 15-20 minutes until tender. Remove potatoes to cool and steam broccoli or green beans 3-5 minutes.

Cool potatoes and vegetables completely. Place them in a large bowl, add tomatoes, celery, onion, olives, chopped basil, chopped parsley, lemon juice,  olive oil if using, sea salt and pepper to taste. Toss until combined and serve!
