Beans, legumes, and nuts are all rich in magnesium. We combine three magnesium-rich beans--lima, kidney, and garbanzo--in an easy-to-make side salad. You can substitute Great Northern beans, pinto beans, or navy beans.
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup cooked bulgur
1 cup frozen lima beans, cooked
1 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 (15 1/2-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; add oil, stirring with a whisk. Add bulgur and remaining ingredients; toss well. Cover and chill.
Very good :) I added a little extra yellow pepper and stevia give it more sweetness. Definitely saving this one.

Very good. Will make again. I followed the recipe exactly. I brought it to work for lunch everyday this week. It took a while to find bulgur at the store, but apparently bulgur is the same as cracked wheat so thatâs what I used. Next time I will use less thyme. If you use the amount specified in the recipe, the thyme flavor will be very strong. I would suggest using 1 tsp.
