How to make Italian White bean salad

Here is my grandma’s Italian white bean salad. Cannellini beans are white kidney beans that supply plenty of fiber to any cuisine they accompany.




  • 15 oz each cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 lettuce leaves



  1. In large glass or plastic bowl, carefully mix all ingredients except lettuce.
  2. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to blend flavors.
  3. Just before serving, spoon onto lettuce, using slotted spoon.
  4. Enjoy your Italian White bean salad.
