Arugula and White Bean Salad

Arugula and White Bean Salad: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 40 min.
Total: 60 min.
This nutritious combination will satisfy without weighing you down. Rosemary, a Mediterranean native whose Latin name means "dew of the sea," is perfect to unite the flavors of this robust salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dried white northern beans, soaked in water overnight (or 2 cans organic white beans)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 3-inch (8cm) stem of rosemary (leaves removed), or 3/4 tsp dried (1g)
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbs sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 bunch arugula, washed, stems removed, and chopped fine
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped kalamata olives

Directions

  • Drain and cook beans in simmering water until tender, about 40 minutes. (Beans have better flavor if you add 1/2 tsp (3g) each of salt and garlic powder or a spoonful of miso and a sprig of marjoram the last 15 minutes of cooking.) You can also use precooked, organic canned beans.
  • In a blender or food processor, add the garlic, rosemary, vinegars, salt, and pepper. Blend while slowly adding the olive oil.
  • Add the beans, arugula, tomatoes and olives to a large salad bowl. Pour desired amount of the dressing over and mix and combine. Serve at room temperature.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
