Antipasto White Bean Salad

Antipasto White Bean Salad 12.000
Jul 26, 2006

This salad could easily be served on its own for lunch or a light supper. On a buffet, it's appealing in both taste and appearance. Use your favorite canned white beans or cook your own. Cannellini beans are large and soft in texture. Navy and other small beans are firmer. Because both the beans and the Italian meats are salty, no additional salt is needed. If cooking dried beans, you might need to add some.


Servings: 12
Ingredients

  • 4 large stalks celery, cut ino 1/4- to 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 10 large basil leaves, cut into thin strips
  • Freshly ground black pepper
