Here’s a vegetable salad made with beans and spinach – a delicious side dish ready in just 15 minutes!

Ingredients

1
package (10 ounces) washed fresh spinach
1
can (15 to 16 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1
large bell pepper, coarsely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
2/3
cup fat-free Italian dressing
1/4
teaspoon garlic pepper
1
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)

Directions

  • 1 Remove large stems from spinach; tear spinach into bite-size pieces. Place spinach in large bowl. Add beans; set aside.
  • 2 Heat bell pepper and dressing to boiling in 1-quart saucepan; reduce heat. Cook uncovered 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic pepper.
  • 3 Pour bell pepper mixture over spinach and beans; toss. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve warm.
Tips  

Cannellini beans are large white kidney beans that are widely used in Italian cuisine. They are soft-textured and very mild in flavor. If you don't have garlic pepper use 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

Add 1 can (6 ounces) tuna in water, drained, with beans in step 1. Increase Italian dressing to 3/4 cup in step 2. Continue as directed.
