Easy White Bean Salad

March 1, 2010 | Salads, Side Dishes, Vegetables

Every time I teach a class for Operation Frontline I talk about the health benefits of eating beans – vitamins, protein without the saturated fat, fiber – and yet I never seem to eat them all that much at home. Truth is, they are cheap, easy, and delicious, and this salad is simple to make. Pair it with a nice piece of fish – or a healthy bison steak like I did – for dinner and you’re set!

Easy White Bean Salad
Serves 2-4

1 can cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
1 small red pepper, diced small
2-3 green onions, sliced thinly
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and let stand for a few minutes for flavors to develop before serving.

  1. I love how simple and healthy this is. I have some roasted red peppers I bet it would be great with!

  2. This looks healthy and delicious. I love white beans, and I often puree them into a dip or throw them in a soup, but I rarely let them stand alone. Your post might inspire me to do just that!

  5. I often use cannelini beans in a regular combination green salad. They add such a special taste. Even plain ole northern beans will suffice!!
