White Bean Salad
This is a very easy bean salad you can make the night before and take to work, or serve as a side dish.
1 can white beans, like cannelini
1 tbsp red pepper, chopped fine
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped fine
¼ cup tomato, diced
1 tbsp red onion, chopped fine
1 tsp quality extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp herb and spice blend
Drain the canned beans and rinse well in a strainer. Make sure you've drained all the rinse water. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, whisking the oil and vinegar together first. Add the beans. Experiment with different types of canned beans and different chopped vegetables to add.
