Baked sea bass fillet with Mediterranean bean salad and pesto dressing
Beans are good for the heart and so much more. Research tells us that eating beans may help improve blood cholesterol, a leading cause of heart disease (heart.org). Plus beans are rich in protein, fiber and minerals.
I absolutely love this Mediterranean bean salad. The pesto dressing really make the flavours come alive. And it's quick to prepare.
