READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by English_Rose

Mediterranean-style bean salad, a quick no-cook supper. Use a can of tuna and flake it into the salad instead of the goat cheese. Or pile up any leftovers on toasted bread for a quick snack.

I like light dinners, but I think this one would be better as a light lunch. I think the tomatoes called for were supposed to be cherry tomatoes...I used Romas, and our dinner turned out being tomatoes with toppings. :) The sauce was very good, I think I will use that for pasta salads in the future. I did use tuna instead of goat cheese to save some $. And I added some red pepper flakes because it seemed to be missing something. In the end, I think it was still missing something. The goat cheese might have made all the difference in the world. This will be a very good dish to experiment with.
