White Bean And Tomato Salad Recipe

This white bean and tomato salad recipe is light, refreshing, and makes the most out of end-of-summer produce. You can use any kind of tomatoes you like here, although smaller varieties such as cherry and grape will give off less liquid, which is preferable if you plan to keep the salad in the refrigerator for a couple of days. In addition to the cucumber and red onion, feel free to add additional vegetables to the mix; broccoli, red pepper, and sweet corn are all excellent options.

White beans are low in fat and high in fiber, the latter of which will keep you feeling fuller longer. In addition, a 1/2 cup serving of white beans weighs in at around 90 calories, so they are a practical choice for weight loss. Beans and legumes in general are considered to be anti-inflammatory, meaning that eating them can aid in the prevention of chronic pain, as well.

Eat this salad on its own, or serve it alongside another lean protein such as chicken or fish for a complete meal!
