Tangy White Bean Salad

This bean salad is exactly what a summer barbecue or cookout needs. It’s good warm or cold, packs creaminess from the white beans, crunch and sharpness from the onion and bell pepper, and flavors galore. The “secret” ingredient is horseradish, though this salad wouldn’t be the same without the added complexity from honey, white wine vinegar, mustard, green olives and peperoncini.

How to make this bean salad

This salad is pretty easy, but does take a little time. First, you drain and rinse a can of cannellini beans. Navy beans or great northern beans will also work. Then, you heat up a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet. Add the beans. Then add about 3-4 tablespoons white wine vinegar. Add about a tablespoon each of honey and horseradish and two tablespoons mustard. Stir and let this simmer on low for about ten minutes, while you complete the next part.

Chop about half a large red onion finely. Chop a red bell pepper and half an orange bell pepper (yellow will also work). Chop about a half cup of green olives. Mix this together in a metal mixing bowl and add about a tablespoon of minced garlic. Add another tablespoon of horseradish.

Then you mix the dressing. This is 1/4 cup white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons honey (to taste) and a couple tablespoons of your oil of choice. Add a good helping of cracked pepper.

Add about 3/4 cup peperoncini to the mix (I like Mezetta), then add the beans and give it a good stir.

Enjoy!

Bean salad is one of my favorite sides for a picnic or just an easy work from home lunch if you add a few cubes of grilled chicken.
