Summer Tomato Recipe #1

A friend of mine in Quilt Club makes this salad and recently shared the recipe. It is just the thing for fresh cherry tomatoes and basil from the garden. Make it on fiery day when it's too hot to turn on the oven.

Not My Bean Salad

1 15oz can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 15oz can cannellini beans, rinsed & drained (garbanzos or favas also work)

1 cup frozen peas, thawed

1/4 cup chopped red onion (I like a bit more)

1/4 cup shredded fresh basil
4 oz. smoked mozzarella, cubed

10-12 (or more!) cherry tomatoes, halved

S & P

Mix ingredients and then dress with vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil

2 T rice vinegar

1 T sherry vinegar (I used balsamic)

1 t Dijon or whole grain mustard
1/2 t salt

1/4 t pepper

This is a great lunch. Serve with a piece of whole grain bread.

This looks so yummy! I cleaned out the pantry this week and found millions of cans of beans. I buy them all the time because they are such staples, but I think I've gone a bit crazy recently. I'm going to have to try this recipe!

Hey! Glad you are back!
I've got a late MTM post. But I totally understand if you don't add it. BTW, yours was awesome!!! BFG loves oatmeal and would flip over this twist to it.
