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.
- 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 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
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.
