  • 1 2/3 cups cannellini beans, cooked (one 15-ounce can, drained)
  • 16 oz mixed salad greens (one 16-ounce bag)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato halves, dried
  • Dressing:3 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  • Prepare sun-dried tomatoes by soaking in water for 15–30 minutes until soft.
  • Prepare dressing: In a small bowl or jar, combine oil, red wine, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  • In a small bowl, add one Tbsp dressing to beans and mix.
  • In a large bowl, combine salad mix with basil and the remaining dressing and gently toss.
  • Arrange greens on individual salad plates and spoon beans on top. Garnish with sun-dried tomatoes.
