Simple No-Cook Summer Meal ::: White Bean Salad
I ate a lot of meat in Ethiopia. A lot. Many times it was my only safe gluten-free option. As tasty as it was, I was more than ready for some fresh fruits and vegetables when I got home. This week I’ve been devouring bell peppers, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, apples, and grapes.
When I started to think about what I would do for this month’s Recipe ReDux challenge (a “no cook” meal), I knew it had to be something fresh and colorful. This salad is just that. Pleasing to the eye, a cinch to throw together, and deliciously satisfying. This white bean salad is perfect for a hot summer night.
