    Heather3271's Note:

    This bean salad is by far one of the best I've ever had (and I eat a lot of them)! This recipe comes from A Taste of Italy (1996) from The American Cooking Guild. Here is the book's description: "Cannellini (white kidney) beans provide the mild background flavor for the crunchy, tangy, zesty ingredients in this dish. Serve this rustic salad with grilled meats or sausages. For a satisfying single-course meal, mix in a jar of imported drained tuna. Serve in a soup plate with crusty Italian bread. Do not add salt until beans are half cooked, or they will become tough." Prep time is for canned beans.

      TIP: For those who don't like celery, use a vegetable peeler to remove the stringy bits on the back of the stalk. This makes the flavor milder and the texture more palatable.

      Small world - I have the same book (more like a pamphlet). I made this last week and my husband loved it. I thought is should have a little less sage, since sage is so aromatic, but it was very good. I used a mix of canned cannellini beans and chick peas that I had left over from another dish. It keeps well in the refrigerator.
