White Bean and Chicken Salad
This salad can be mixed up in so many ways. You can omit the chicken and make it vegetarian, and add any vegetables that you might have. This is a meal in one! I served this with fresh crisp red romaine lettuce, serving the bean salad on top.
2 cups chopped chicken, leftover roasted chicken would be great
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3 cup sliced fresh basil
3 cups cannellini beans, rinsed and drained if canned
1 cup zucchini or summer squash, cubed on the diagonal
1 bell pepper, or spicy pepper, diced
1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
Make the salad by combining all salad ingredients, and stir gently.
Make the dressing separate in a small mason jar. Put all of the ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake until well combined.
Add dressing to salad and toss to coat.
This salad will be good warm or chilled and is great the next day!
