My vegan White Bean Salad recipe is the perfect, hearty vegan or vegetarian dish for cookouts and more!
Today’s recipe is compliments of my rock-star brother, Tommy. It’s his vegan White Bean Salad recipe.
It’s actually kind of funny that both Tommy and I ended up working in the food world (he’s a manager at Morton’s in Charlotte and loves to cook.) Our Mom cooked growing up, but she basically was just doing it to feed us, not because she enjoyed it. We both fondly remember her making meatloaf in the microwave. That might actually be why I’m a vegetarian/pescatarian… but that’s a story for another day. 🙂
So neither of us were really taught to cook… it’s just something we both picked up and grew to love on our own. I think it comes from the fact that we both just love to EAT good food.Fresh White Bean Salad- only 8 easy ingredients!
But I digress, I was at his house and he made the most delicious swordfish with a horseradish topping. On the side, he served this crazy simple vegan White Bean Salad recipe. I could not get enough of it. The soft white beans paired perfectly with the fresh veggies, light red wine based dressing and piles of fresh herbs.
In perfect food blogger style, I came back home and recreated it just like my bro.
This dish is the perfect side, vegetarian/ vegan main or even wonderful piled on a bed of greens. It’s colorful, protein-packed and crazy easy to make. It’s only 8 ingredients, many of which you might already have in your pantry or fridge, especially this time of year.
