We've been having this White Bean Salad a lot lately. It's SO YUMMY! We use it as a side dish but you could certainly make it a light lunch! It's quick and simple to throw together. It's really important to use FRESH herbs in this one, dried probably won't cut it, and good balsamic vinegar. This would be a great picnic salad also because it doesn't need to be refridgerated, although we like to eat this salad cold if possible. I hope you enjoy this salad as much as we do!
