Serves 4 to 6
With so few ingredients, this salad is surprisingly substantial thanks to the protein- and fiber-packed white beans. Tender spinach, zippy red onion and a bold Dijon dressing fill out this simple salad that works as a main dish or side.
Ingredients: 
  • 3 cups cooked no-salt-added cannellini beans, from 2 (15-ounce cans) beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups tightly packed fresh spinach leaves, tough stems removed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Method: 
In a large mixing bowl combine beans and onion. Slice spinach into thin ribbons and add to the beans.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar and Italian seasoning. Pour dressing over the bean mixture and stir to combine all ingredients. Serve immediately.
