White Bean Salad over ArugulaDecember 28th, 2014 0 Comments


If you’re like me and eat salads ALL THE TIME, you probably get very bored! This salad is a nice break from the traditional and is filling and packed with protein-rich Cannellini beans.

Serves: 2 as a meal, 4 as a side

Ingredients:

  • 13 oz. box of Cannellini beans (I like the 365 brand boxed beans), rinsed and drained
  • 12-15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • Bunch Italian parsley, chopped
  • Bag of arugula
  • Avocado (optional)
  • Small handful of capers
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine beans, onion, tomato, capers and parsley. Drizzle with oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well to coat.

Place a bed of arugula into a bowl and top with white bean salad. Add an avocado for an extra kick!

Pairing Suggestion: This salad pairs nicely with a fruity white wine, such as a Sauvignon Blanc.

  • I am a web designer by day and a food enthusiast by night. I'm originally from the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area but moved to the west coast (first OR an now CA) two years ago. Prior to that I spent two years in France and Spain. Living in Europe not only made me a much more experimental cook, but also taught me about the importance of improvising in a recipe -- because on most days I could never find all of the ingredients I needed!

    I try to use fresh/seasonal market ingredients when available and I add hot peppers to pretty much everything (so watch out!). I hope you enjoy my recipes and feel free to share.

    Have fun browsing and even more fun cooking!
