Arugula Salad with White Beans

Arugula is best known for its peppery flavor.  Starting with this, create a savory salad with white protein-packed beans and a touch of onion and you'll have a full flavored nutritious dish. 

  • 3 cups washed arugula

  • 1 can rinsed and drained cannelloni beans

  • 1/2 thinly sliced red onion

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  •  1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  •  1/8 cup red wine vinegar

  •  1 T. dijon mustard

  •  salt and ground pepper to taste

blend salad ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, whisk the dijon into the red wine vinegar.  Slowly add the olive oil. Blend into the salad and finish with salt and pepper to taste. Be creative and add some herbs from your garden to broaden the flavors.
