Arugula, White Bean & Roasted Red Pepper Salad

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 min

It can't get much easier than this. Just toss the ingredients in a big bowl with the dressing and serve...

Ingredients:

SALAD:
3 cups torn arugula leaves
1/2 cup chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
1 (16 ounce) can navy beans, rinsed & drained
1/3 cup vertically sliced red onion (optional)

DRESSING:
1 1/2 Tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

1. To prepare salad, combine salad ingredients in a large bowl.

2. To prepare dressing, combine vinegar and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Pour over salad, tossing to coat.

Tips:

*I actually prefer this salad without the onions. The slightly peppery flavor of arugula is perfect with just the roasted red peppers, beans and the simple dressing.

*Use regular balsamic vinegar if you'd like- but the white variety is nice because it won't make your salad look muddy.
