Cannellini and Green Bean Salad

This is an easy side dish.  My hubby who usually does not enjoy salads even liked it!  The boys however were not too thrilled about this side dish.  You can't win it all.

Stars of the recipe:
  • 1 15.5 oz. can of cannellini beans (white kidney beans)
  • 1/2 lb. of fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsps. extra virgin olive oil
  • coarse salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 21 season salute to taste (Trader Joe's spice - my favorite spice blend), optional
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar and oil.
  2. Season with the salt. pepper, and 21 season salute
  3. Meanwhile, cook the green beans in a pot of boiling salted water for about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  5. Add the green beans, cannellini beans, and red onion to the dressing bowl.  If needed, season with more salt and pepper. 
  6. Toss all ingredients together.
  7. Serve

Happy eating, Traci
