White Bean Salad

IMG_3682This salad is a healthy side dish alternative to macaroni or potato salad for your summer barbeques. Serve with tortilla chips as an appetizer. It’s also perfect for a picnic! Just add some chicken to make healthy and delicious wraps. Always make sure your salads remain chilled! Because this one doesn’t have mayo it is not as prone to spoilage in the hot weather. 

* Prepare a day in advance to allow the flavors to sink in. Serves approx 8-10.

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
