Simple Saturday: White Bean Salad
This week, I threw this dish together because I was in need of a salad that didn't contain lettuce (because we were out).
It was quite a conundrum.
Then, I remembered that I had a can of white beans in the pantry and since the salad was accompanying pasta, the Italian vibe would totally work.
I made this super simple salad by combining washed, drained white beans with carrots, freshly chopped basil, oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and a bit of garlic salt.
I mixed it all together and threw it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
It was a delicious and fresh side to our Italian meal.
P.S. White beans are also great on lettuce salads with tuna and in this amazing app. If you have any other great uses for these dandy beans, give me a shout out.
