"A fresh salad that takes only moments to prepare. Tastes even better when made ahead to allow more time for the flavors to meld."

2 (15.8 ounce) cans
BUSH'S® Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
small Roma (plum) tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
fresh basil leaves, torn into 1/2-inch pieces
Freshly ground pepper
extra-virgin olive oil
garlic cloves, minced
I took the lazy way out and just combined the rinsed and drained beans with a can of undrained diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil. I chopped a bunch of fresh basil and added that, too. Voila - quick, cheap and easy lunch for this week.
I found the recipe rather tasteless and oily. Even after marinating overnight the flavors did not intensify or really impart to the beans.
I love this simple white bean salad. I used just a bit more garlic and crazy-mixed up pepper instead of black pepper to give it a little more kick. It turned out wonderful and the family loves it. I would definitely bring it as a side dish to any party.
We have always like the white bean/tomato combination but I add some very thinly sliced white sweet or red onion. Also a few bacon bits-if I have. And if have romaine or leafy green lettuce will cut some in FINELY sliced strands & add along with the olive oil a splash or two of balsamic. This makes an excellent side dish in the summer but we have it thru out the year.
this was great. I didn't have fresh basil so I used 1/4 tsp dried, it would be really good with fresh though. I used canned pre chopped tomatoes and their sauce. I thought I would have to add some lemon juice for tangyness but it did not meed it. I also added frozen chopped asparagus to the olive oil and garlic to sautee, it was a good addition. I also omitted the salt, it did need it at all. Next time I will make it with even more green veggies.
