Tomato and White Bean Salad – Fresh tomatoes are mixed with white beans and tossed in a vinegarette dressing for an easy summer side dish.
My friend Lisa over at Jersey Girl Cooks wrote her first cookbook, Super Easy Cookbook for Beginners! This book offers 120 easy, five ingredients or fewer recipes. Even though it’s designed for novice cooks, this book is just perfect for any cook that’s looking for quick and easy recipes that are healthy too.
In addition to recipes, the book has recommendations for cooking essentials, common cooking terms, storing and preparing food. Each recipe in this book has tips to inspire new cooks to get creative in the kitchen. There are tips for swaps, techniques, variations and even leftover ideas. And today is your lucky day because I’m giving one of Lisa’s cookbooks away,so head on down to the bottom of the page to enter!
Tomato and White Bean Salad
I made one of Lisa’s recipes to show you just how easy her recipes are. Since tomatoes are in season, I chose her Tomato and White Bean Salad. This salad was in a bowl and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes! Although I suggest this salad should sit for a half an hour before you eat it because it tastes so much better once the juice from the tomatoes has a chance to meet the dressing.
Serve this salad served on top of a bed of salad greens as Lisa suggests in her book or as a side with your favorite burger.
