Summer Bean Salad
1 can of cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
fresh herbs, finely chopped (your choice)
1 large tomato, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
handful of pea pods (from my farmer's market and used for some crunch factor), chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
juice of one lemon
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Finely chop your herbs, coarsely chop your tomato and slice your green onions...
The herbs I selected from my garden were basil, thyme, and rosemary. Notice I put 3 leaves of basil and just a bit of thyme and rosemary. I wanted a delicate flavor of herbs, not an overpowering one. You can taste your salad and always add more if you like.
Put your drained, rinsed beans and herbs in a bowl. Add all your remaining ingredients. Mix to coat all ingredients. Chill in fridge until you are ready to serve.
