Tomato white bean salad is made with cherry tomatoes, white beans, olives, roasted red peppers, fresh herbs, olive oil and parmesan. It comes together simply for a flavorful meal or side dish for warm weather.
As the weather warms up here in Chicago and it’s finally starting to feel like spring, I find myself craving lots of fresh flavors, and cold dishes like salads or no lettuce salads that are easy to put together and taste like spring!
One vegetable that tastes like pure spring? Lolli Bombs™ tomatoes from SUNSET®. Perhaps the most juicy and sweet cherry tomatoes I’ve ever had, Lolli Bombs™. They are bright yellow and truly add such a nice, bright, and juicy flavor to each bite of this bean salad.
Packed on the vine, don’t hesitate to grab a pack or two when you see them at the store this summer as they make for a delicious ingredient or snack!
Plus when it starts getting hot out often the last thing we want to do is turn on our ovens. Keep this super simple tomato and bean salad in your back pocket for this summer when it’s too hot to cook — you can feel good knowing it’s packed with fiber and plant-based protein and vitamin C.
