This humble side dish relies on top-notch ingredients, so use good-quality canned beans (or better yet, start with dried and cook your own), ripe tomatoes, fruity olive oil and fresh herbs. Basil, parsley or sage can be substituted for the oregano.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (1 1/4 oz./37 g) finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cans (15 oz./470 g each) low-sodium cannellini or other white
      beans
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Put the onion in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold running water. Drain well. Put the beans in a colander, drain, rinse well and drain again.

Cut the tomatoes in half horizontally. Gently squeeze out the seeds, using your fingertip to scoop them out if necessary. Chop the tomatoes coarsely. You should have about 1 1/2 cups (9 oz./280 g).

In a bowl, mix the beans, tomatoes, vinegar, olive oil, oregano, onion, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving. Serves 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick lunch favorite! I love this for a quick lunch while unpacking my groceries.... Although, instead of 2 cans of beans, I just use 1, plus a can of sardines or tuna. Then I mound it atop a piece of lightly toasted "good" bread and I like to top it off with a leaf of fresh basil to keep everything from falling off as I guide it to my mouth...remember, I'm unpacking groceries and eating at the same time so it doesn't have to look pretty. Also, being the lazy, frugal home cook that I am...I do not like to remove the seeds from the tomatoes. I always leave them in which creates extra sauce in the bottom of the bowl, perfect for dredging pieces of that fresh new baguette! Yummo! Luscious, filling and good for you too! Serves 4? Hah! Dare I say, I could eat this all by myself, sooOo good! Okay, keeping it healthy, 4 portions is perfect....
