White Bean Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Dressing:
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1½ Tbs Olive Oil
7 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced
1 clove of garlic, pressed
zest of one lemon, finely grated
1 tsp mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Salad:
1 can Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup chopped tomato
1 avocado, diced
½ sweet onion

In a small bowl mix the dressing ingredients together, whisk until well blended.

In a large bowl mix together the salad ingredients. Add the dressing and toss lightly to coat evenly. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve!

Note: this is one of those salads where the ingredients may be change based on what you have on hand. Fresh red pepper, red onions or cucumbers would be wonderful additions!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE bean salad, Barbara. I used to make one with a bag of 13-beans, which recipe I found on the bag. It was to die for, especially if you let it sit overnight in the fridge!

I like to vary the ingredients for what happens to be in my refrigerator.

If you move them from one album to another on photobucket they loose the link line for the original post.

I just like that the ingredients are so pretty together and the dressing is a very light lemony taste to add that "just right" touch. The cannellini beans are one of my favorites, although if I have some of those Mexican mayocoba beans in the pantry I'll cook some up as they are creamy like the cannellini ones. Funny, but the red kidney beans gag me...I'll substitute those every time.
