Bean Salad With Romaine Lettuce: Inside The Kitchen

YUM! This salad is SUPER easy to make and is a meal on its own. I made it alongside some pasta (which I will post about tomorrow) and it was just too much food! Almost invited over my neighbors to help us out! LOL

Here’s what you need:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • can of cannelloni beans (drained and rinsed)
  • jar of Kalamata olives (drained)
  • string beans
  • crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat the green beans in olive oil. Some people like the taste of raw veggies – I don’t. So I cooked them for a few minutes. Then chop them up and let cool.

Chop up the lettuce, dice the onion and add the string beans to a large bowl.

Drain the beans and the olives and add to the salad.

Lightly toss with oil and vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste then top with feta cheese. Serve with a piece of bread and you are good to go!!!

I didn’t have any tomatoes – but this would have been a great addition!
