I make this easy salad almost every week. It’s a perfect light lunch or mid-afternoon snack. I often make a double batch and keep it in the fridge all week. It’s easy to customize with whatever ingredients you have on hand. I sometimes use garbanzos instead of white beans. If I want to “fancy it up” I use dried beans instead of canned. I think slow-cooking dried beans makes the bean salad even more rich and delicious. You can also swap in lime juice, or even use bottled lemon or lime juice. Some fun add-ins are feta cheese, olives, tabasco sauce, sesame seeds, sweet onion, cucumbers, or whatever else your heart desires.

This simple salad comes together in minutes and uses many ingredients that you probably have in your pantry and fridge. Swap in your favorite type of bean and get creative on the add-ins!
