White Bean Salad

White Bean Salad
I like to make this salad according to what I have on hand, varying it a bit each time I make it. Here's the basic template. It's a great impromptu summer side dish, or even entree when served with some bread & fresh green salad. It's also a nice, simple contribution to a potluck or picnic. Here's the basic template:

White Bean Salad
2 cans White Beans (or 3 cups Home Prepared) such as Great Northern or Cannelini

Some of the following Veggies - according to what I have on hand- aiming for a variety of flavours & textures:
Finely Minced Red Onion
Diced Scallion (Green Onion)
Sliced Black Olives
Sliced Green Olives
Diced Bell Peppers (any Color)
Diced Fresh Tomatoes (or Halved Grape Tomatoes)
Fresh Parsley
Diced Cucumber
Sliced Celery

Toss with
1/4 Cup Simply Greek Dressing (Regular or Oil Free)
Generous Oregano


  1. I go in spurts with this particular white bean - like Great Northern or Cannelli Beans only because I'm not as sure about flavor combos with them as I am with Chickpeas which I would use in ANYTHING with just about flavor combo. This sounds perfect! LOVE the colors, too!

  2. So pretty! And sounds delish. I love the beautiful colors of fresh fruit, too. It's almost summer!!! ♥ I agree with you Jennifer...I can eat Chickpeas ALL the time, with anything.


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
