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!


  3. I’m going to try to make this! It looks healthy and delicious!


  4. Hello Michelle!
    Your salad looks delicious, fresh and beautiful! I’d love to feature it on my site with full links and credits back to you if you are keen!

    Please let me know!

    All the best,


  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!!
