Dilled White Bean and Grape Tomato Salad

white bean saladI made this salad recently to accompany some grilled steak, and it was a delicious and refreshing side dish. I’m looking forward to making it again for an upcoming potluck because a) I know it will be a hit and b) it was so easy!! This recipe makes 6 to 8 servings.

The Ingredients:

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) of cannellini (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
  • 2.5 cups of halved grape tomatoes (about 12 ounces) or you can use cherry tomatoes
  • 2/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed

The Instructions:

This is ridiculously easy …. Toss all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Let marinate at room tempertaure for 1 hour.

You can also make it a day ahead. Cover and chill.

It’s fresh. It’s healthy. It’s different.
