Romaine Salad with Orange, Feta & Beans

From: EatingWell

Adding canned beans is a quick, convenient way to make a salad into a meal - they boost the protein to make the salad more satisfying. We call for kidney beans, but other canned beans like cannellinis or black beans would also work nicely.

Servings: 2 servings, about 4 cups each
Prep: 15 mins
Total: 15 mins

Ingredients
6 cups  romaine lettuce, chopped
1 cup  radishes, sliced
1 cup  canned kidney beans, rinsed (see Tip)
1   orange, segmented
1   scallion, sliced
1/4 cup  crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1/4 cup  Orange-Oregano Dressing
Directions
1. Combine lettuce, radishes, beans, orange, scallion, feta and dressing in a large bowl. Toss to coat.
Tip:
Tip: Store leftover canned beans in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Toss them into soup for extra protein; mash with garlic powder and chopped fresh herbs for a quick dip.

I love this salad. But I'm not a huge fan of radishes-- I substituted Fennel in place.
