5-Minute Healthy Mediterranean White Bean Salad Recipe Is Yum

A five-minute Mediterranean white bean salad that's fast, filling, healthy and delicious? No, you're not dreaming! Filled with fiberprotein and nutrients like folate, magnesium, and vitamin B6, cannellini beans are a nutritional powerhouse that may help you with your weight loss goals. Plus, this bean salad is absolutely delicious!

This easy white bean salad recipe can be thrown together in less than five minutes and uses items you already may have in your pantry. All I added to my white bean salad was a can of white beans (great northern beans or cannellini beans work great), Italian dressing (or use olive oil), a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, crushed red pepper flakes, chopped red onion and fresh herbs. But add whatever ingredients you like. Grape tomatoes would be a good one to toss in.

Serve this easy Mediterranean bean salad as a side dish with dinner or for lunch
