White Bean Caprese Salad

White Bean Caprese Salad – a delicious, protein packed summer salad that is EASY to make, no cooking required!

Nothing says summer like a Caprese salad, and this one is made with white beans for added protein and fiber. It’s EASY to make, and there’s no cooking required which is a bonus during these hot summer temperatures we’re having this week.

I served this as a side salad last night along with grilled fish and my husband really enjoyed it, but this would also be great as a main dish to pack for lunch if you increase the servings to 4 people. Perfect to make ahead and this can easily be halved.
