This Marinated White Bean Salad is a must for simple summer dining! Hearty and packed with plant-based protein, this salad is perfect as a light lunch, as a side dish to your favorite summer meal or on top of your favorite Mediterranean-inspired salad.
When it comes to simple dining, this recipe is king. Open a few cans of white beans, then drain and rinse. Add to a large bowl and add in chopped, jarred roasted red bell peppers, fresh chopped parsley, a generous squirt of fresh lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil. As this salad gets so much flavor from the simple dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and Litehouse® Italian Herb Blend, make sure to use high quality olive oil—the fruitier, the better! Toss everything together, then let marinate for at least 5 minutes. This allows the freeze-dried herbs to rehydrate in the dressing and really allow for the flavors to pop!
From there, the possibilities are endless. I like to make a big batch of this in the beginning of the week as part of simple meal prep. It’s great on it’s own, straight from the fridge, or on top of a big green salad. It’s also great for grain bowls— especially with cooked grains like farro or quinoa, steamed greens or roasted broccoli.
Litehouse® Italian Herb Blend is the quintessential mix of herbs and seasonings for any authentic Italian dish. This multi-use blend tastes great on a number of dishes; it’s packed with five different types of freeze-dried herbs including basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary and sage alongside garlic, red pepper and red onion.
Hope you love this Marinated White Bean Salad as much as we do! It’s a healthy, easy meal salad that’s fantastic for warm Spring and Summer days.
