What’s In This Summery Bean Salad Recipe?

  • White Beans: you can use canned beans or make them youself from dried beans. I usually always cook my beans from scratch as they have lower sodium and is really easy to do in the Instant Pot. You can use navy beans, cannelini beans, or chickpeas too.
  • Cucumber: picked that day off the vine
  • Tomatoes: same as above!  Theres nothing better than fresh grown tomatoes.
  • Parsley: My favorite herb, gives this salad a a bright fresh flavor!
  • Olive Oil: for the dressing
  • Vinegar: I used apple cider for a kick and a little sweetness.

How Do I Make This Summer Salad with White Beans?

  1. In a large bowl, add the white beans, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and a touch of Salt and pepper.
  2. Stir well and toss to combine all ingredients so they are coated in the vinegar and oil.
  3. Taste and add additional salt or pepper if needed.
