Refreshing Cannellini Bean Salad

Refreshing Cannellini Bean Salad created by januarybride

A wonderfully refreshing bean salad, great served alongside BBQ meats. Every now and again I'll add in a chopped tomato or two.

ingredients

directions

  • Drain the beans and rinse under cold water, drain well.
  • Into a food processor or blender, put the garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, basil leaves, parsley leaves, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Pulse for a few seconds so that there is still texture. Put the beans into a bowl and pour over the dressing, toss well.
  • If possible leave for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before serving -- but can be eaten right away and still be very flavoursome.

    Delish! I didn't have the fresh herbs and I really like Spice Supreme's Pizza Seasoning so I substituted that (about 1/8 cup-it's strong!) for the herbs in this full recipe. Thought I would miss the onions not being in it, but I don't! Use the fresh lemon juice, though, it's worth it. With the above dried herbs though, you won't need hardly any salt and pepper even if you drain and wash your canned beans.

    Been doing this for years since a memorable trip to Italy where they add tuna packed in olive oil and omit the parsley and sometimes add diced tomato. I cook my own beans (try those from Rancho Gordo in Napa Valley, which you can buy online) and it's even better.

    This was super simple and tasty. After reading some other reviews and trying the salad I agree that tomatoes would enhance this dish! Thanks for posting!
