A Little Time and a Keyboard: White Bean Salad: Perfect for Summer Barbecues

White Bean Salad: Perfect for Summer Barbecues

Sunday, June 3, 2012

Earlier this year, I discovered a simple and tasty White Bean Salad recipe by Cooking Light that is very easy but tastes great. The original recipe actually uses roasted chicken. However, I have found that the recipe holds it own without the chicken, making it a great side or a meatless meal on its own!

I have made this salad for a couple of BBQs now and it has been quite the hit! Take a look below:

The salad is pretty colorful and is a good opportunity to use fresh tomatoes and basil from your garden. The dressing is a light dijon-vinaigrette. Check on Cooking Light's website for this recipe and other great recipes!


  1. This looks amazing. I'm always looking for things to make for my sister, who doesn't eat meat. This is simple but flavorful. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like this, it's perfect and a refreshing change of pace from a green salad too. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop xo
