White Bean Salad

Beans, beans, beans! My summer has been all about trying to increase my plant based protein intake and beans are an excellent way to do just that! This salad is a refreshing, satisfying and full of ingredients that are truly good for you! As with every recipe I post, it is REALLY simple and takes no more than 10 minutes to put together. If you’re in a rush you can eat it right away, but if you let it rest in the refrigerator all the flavors really marinate together and enhance the salad. This white bean salad is a great side dish to any meal and the left overs can be used throughout the week as a lunch or snack option as well!
