This white bean salad is packed with fresh, healthy ingredients! Super easy to whip up with just one bowl, in under 5 minutes. Loaded with nutritious ingredients, and enough protein to leave you feeling full until your next meal.
What Makes This Recipe So Good
- It all comes together in just one bowl! This means easy assembly, and even easier cleanup. No need to dirty a bunch of dishes for this white bean salad recipe.
- It’s super healthy and loaded with good-for-you ingredients! Fresh cucumber, tomato, and red onion are all tossed in this easy lunch or dinner. It’s also tossed in a light olive oil, lemon juice, and dried herb dressing!
- It makes the perfect addition to weekly meal prep! This white bean salad tastes better with time, so prep it ahead of a busy week and enjoy it all week long. When ready to eat, either have it as-is, or sprinkle it over lettuce for an even more nutrient-dense salad.
- For even more flavor, cover your white bean salad and let is sit in the fridge overnight. Leaving the beans and veggies to marinate in the dressing will give them enough time to soak up tons of flavor. When you return, you’ll have the best tasting bean salad ever!
- Serve this plant-based recipe however you’d like. I love it on its own as a quick and easy lunch. However, it also tastes delicious over lettuce or alongside lean protein (such as fish or steak).
- Have fun with this recipe! This is one of those healthy dishes you can totally customize based on your preferences. I also like to switch up the fresh veggies in this dish based on what I have on-hand.
