Mediterranean Bean Salad with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette

Chilled, crispy and fresh is what we want most this time of year, so my Mediterranean Bean salad is sure to be one of those repeat worthy meals for the season. The combination of soft, crunchy, creamy and tangy are incredible together.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients for Lemon Honey Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey

Ingredients for Salad

  • 4 cups cooked beans of your choice (I used white beans, garbanzo, pinto, kidney)
  • 3 cups of fresh chilled arugula
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
