I love a good salad. And ones like this, from Cooking Light, are wonderful because they’re easy to prepare and they have enough protein to make you feel like you ate something substantial.

Lemony White Bean-And-Arugula Salad: A simple, elegant, hearty salad that comes together in under 10 minutes!

I made this for lunch and kept the dressing/bean mixture separate from the arugula so it could be enjoyed more than once without having to worry about soggy salad greens.

When my husband was looking for a late-night snack a couple days later, I told him to pop a pile of arugula on top of the bowl of dressing-soaked beans and onions and toss it together. He really enjoyed it, too, and I didn’t have to do any extra work!

The flavor combination here is great – it’s nice and tangy and the red onion adds a nice, crunchy contrast to the silky white beans.

I’d say this makes 4 side dish servings, but only 2 servings if you’re having it as a meal on its own.
