People frequently think of Spanish beans as the perfect food for winter. And while they do go wonderfully in any number of hearty soups and stews, Spanish beans are also the perfect accompaniment for any number of fresh and simple summer recipes.

In fact, I usually keep a few jars of lentils, garbanzos, white beans and other cooked Spanish legumes on-hand to add substance, flavor, extra nutrients and that wonderful creamy texture to any summer salad.

For more ideas on what to do with Spanish beans in the summertime, try this recipe from Foods from Spain.
