Bridal Shower Recipes: White Bean & Olive Salad
My mom has made this salad for me before and I loved it! So simple and fresh tasting.
No changes to the recipe but I do advise to always use fresh lemon juice and to buy pitted olives.
We quadrupled the recipe for 25 but probably only needed to double or triple it.
White Bean & Olive Salad
3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans (white beans), rinsed and drained
1/2 red onion , thinly sliced
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and Dijon mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add beans, onion slices, and olives; toss to combine.
Place prepared salad in the refrigerator for about 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend properly.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
