White Bean Salad

Monday. A time to restart. No better way than with this white bean salad my best friend’s mom taught me. It’s incredible alone, atop greens, or as a side to chicken or fish. Best part? It takes maybe 5 minutes to make.


Ingredients:

  • 1 can white beans, washed & drained
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 10 oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste

A note on ingredients, they’re a bit customizable. Any white bean will be fine: cannellini, white kidney, great northern, etc. Same with tomatoes. I had cherry on hand, but grape or a larger, diced tomato would work too!

Directions:

  1. Do your prep first. Wash and drain the beans, dice your onion, halve the tomatoes, and chop the parsley.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
