Summery white-bean salad with tomatoes and basil stands in for more predictable side dishes.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine beans, tomatoes, basil, and salt in a bowl, and season with pepper.

Let stand 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld. Salad can be covered and kept at room temperature up to 4 hours.

Fantastic recipe! A lot of flavor with little effort. Used an assortment of tomatoes from the garden. Delish!

I have made this recipe dozens of times. It's my go-to recipe when I need something for a pot luck. It really has a kick, and it's so easy to make!

This salad is so easy to make and has lots of flavor. I have made it several times and it goes well with meat as a side dish or as a main course with some cheese or prosciutto.
