Summer is finally here so I’ve made a delicious and easy bean salad, perfect for your outdoor party or picnic. Simply toss some beans with whatever vegetables or herbs you have on hand and you’ve got a healthy dish to serve. Cannellini beans are usually my bean of choice for hearty soup or salad recipes. They’re delicate, creamy and taste great with whatever you add to it. Serve chilled or at room temperature as a mid-day snack or side dish. This would also go great with crispy salmon or grilled shrimp.
The beans are dressed with a simple homemade vinaigrette, so there’s no need to buy a bottle at the store. All you need is olive oil and vinegar, then mix it with the seasonings of your choice. I used red wine vinegar but balsamic vinegar would work perfectly fine.
