White Bean & Artichoke Salad

If you are trying to add more beans into your diet, try this recipe as it uses white beans, which are protein-rich and full of vitamins and minerals. They are also an excellent source of dietary fiber.

  • 3 cups white beans, drained
  • ½ (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • 2/3 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped black olives
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ ounce chopped fresh mint leaves
  • ¾ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine beans, artichoke hearts, bell peppers, olives, onion, parsley, mint, and basil.
  2. In a jar or small bowl, combine oil and vinegar; shake together or mix well. Pour oil and vinegar over the salad, and toss to coat.
  3. Cover and chill in refrigerator for several hours or overnight, stirring occasionally, to let flavors blend.
