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.

  1. This dish is SO good! The flavors pop! I will definitely make this again and will try it with some grilled chicken mixed in. 

  2. Love this recipe.

    When I make it again, I will most likely further season and cook the canned beans before adding to this recipe, just so they get a little more flavor and softness.

  3. Great, light, filling salad!  Just enough salt and sweetness to produce an excellent flavor.  I made this as a side to light dinner, but I would love to take this to a potluck or picnic.  So good, so easy to throw together, so healthy!  Loved it!

  4. I loved this recipe with one exception the raw garlic just thru it off and made it bitter. I micro-planed one garlic clove and it was too much. It would have been just the right thing if it had been roasted or sautéed in a little olive oil. I suggest omitting the garlic unless you cook it first.

  5. This delivered as promised – pretty and tasty! Served as a first course and I figured the girls would like it, but the guys did too, even my husband who doesn’t like ‘cold food dishes’. Thank you for the recipe.

  6. Took this to my work potluck. 
    I received multiple positive comments and a request for the recipe. 
    So that’s a thumbs up. 

  7. Just had this for lunch, it’s so good! Will also be great for lunch on the beach this summer 🙂
