I like to make this salad the night before, allowing the garlic flavors to absorb into the beans. The dried cranberries add a nice sweet chewiness, which the celery and red pepper add a crunch. The dressing is a simple mixture of oil, balsamic, maple syrup, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Last week Deb from Smitten Kitchen posted a picture of these black and white cookies which reminded me that I've always wanted to make them. Soft lemony pillowy cake-like cookies with vanilla and chocolate frosting on top.
