Tomato Herb and Cannellini Bean Salad

tomato salad

I can’t wait to make this over the summer with garden tomatoes and herbs–a perfect picnic salad as it is best room temperature!

Ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes

Parsley

Basil

Cilantro

Mint

Salt and Pepper

Olive Oil

Champagne Vinegar

Lemon Zest

Cannellini Beans

1. Cut tomatoes in half.

2. Chop fresh herbs and add to tomatoes and beans.

3. Blend zest, vinegar, salt and pepper, and olive oil into a dressing and pour over salad.

This stores for up to a week.

I used it in a couple variations:

1. As a side dish to dinner.

2. Italian roll (toasted) with goat cheese, and the salad as the filling.

3. With a salad of Arugula, Greek Olives, Feta, Roasted Potatoes:
