Summer = Time for Simple Salads (#1 white bean, tomatoes, olives)

Salad with White Beans and Balsamic DressingThere is no time like summer to eat in tip top form! And with fresh ingredients abound you can prep a healthy, mouth-watering meal in no time flat. Here’s a salad with lots of veggie protein so you can skip “cooking” all-together.

Super Simple Lite* Balsamic Dressing
Just whip the following ingredients up in a little bowl:

  • 2 Tb. olive, sunflower, or your oil of choice
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Prepare your salad
In a large bowl, combine:

  • 4 cups of mixed leafy greens
  • 1 can of drained and rinsed white beans
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • 12 sliced kalamata olives (or more for your taste)*

Toss salad with dressing and you are good to go. Enjoy!

*My amazing hubby has lost 55 pounds in the last year with the Weight Watchers program. So salad dressings always go lite around here. You can add more oil – or add a little water to stretch the dressing further without the extra fat.
