Quick White Bean Salad

Posted on

I had this for the first time at a potluck we had at our office and it was one of my favorite dishes there. It’s nothing fancy by any  means – probably took me a whole 3 minutes to put together, but it’s really, really good.  Anyway, I asked the girl who made it to send me the recipe — here it is!

What You Need:

1 14.5-ounce can white beans, drained but not rinsed

2 Tbsp chopped red onion

A squeeze of lemon juice

2 teaspoons wine vinegar (red or white)

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dry herbs de provence (crumbled) OR 1 teaspoon of some combination of finely chopped rosemary, tarragon, thyme, and lavender

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

What You Do:

After you chop up the onion, squeeze a little lemon juice over it and let it sit for a few minutes while you prepare everything else.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, add the onion/lemon juice mixture and YOU’RE DONE! you can either serve it right away, or refrigerate it so that the flavors really soak into the beans.

This thing is REALLY easy (as you can probably tell) and delicious. Perfect for a side dish, or over a salad, or as a snack or… for anything really.Enjoy!
