Tastes Like Spring! Lemony White Bean and Arugula Salad

March 16, 2015

This is my favorite “go-to” salad.  I threw this together one day when I wanted something fresh tasting and healthy to eat.  I eat a huge bowl of this because it is very low calorie and the beans will meet your protein requirements for the day. I don’t measure ingredients for this, it is more to taste, but will provide them for you for a point of reference. Feel free to adjust to your liking. Makes a family-sized serving.

Lemony White Bean and Arugula Salad

5 cups packed arugula, rinsed

1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

3 teaspoons capers

1 teaspoon sunflower seeds (optional)

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (adjust to taste)

1 teaspoon lemon zest

freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon maple syrup (start with less)

1/2 cup shaved Parmesan

Combine everything in a big bowl, top with Parmesan.

Enjoy!
