Mandy's Warm White Bean and Arugula Salad
This is one of my favorite summer salads! It reminds me of eating dinners outside on warm summer nights when I lived in southern Italy as a kid. Pair this with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc and you will be transported to Italia immediately!
The other reason why I love this salad is because it can be made as light or as heavy as you like. When I make it for myself, I go heavier on the white beans for a protein-packed lunch. And when I make it as a side dish for grilled pizza night with my hubby, I use less beans and more greens. Arugula is full of Vitamins A and K and has sky-high levels of antioxidant plant pigments Lutein and Zeaxanthin, at 711 mcg per cup.
