Cannellini Bean Salad

Cannellini Bean Salad

This past week was a busy one! My husband’s family was in town from all over the country and it was so much fun catching up with all of them over the week. We had several picnics, dinners and even celebrated the Fourth of July with loads of fireworks at the beach.

Then over the weekend we were with my family and had a somewhat second celebration of the Fourth of July as well. We had such a nice time there as well kayaking, paddle boarding and going for boat rides. I felt like I missed out a lot last summer since I was in the third trimester of my pregnancy and being pregnant in the summer just isn’t ideal, so I’m looking forward to making up for it this summer!

For one of the picnics I made this Cannellini Bean Salad. I wanted to make a dish that was a little light but packed some freshness and flavor. This recipe is fairly simple and the prep time is rather quick since you just have to mise en place some veggies and make the dressing. I hope this offers you a new dish that you can take to a picnic this summer or gives you a new idea for dinner this week.
