White Bean Salad Recipe

This tasty white bean salad is a perfect summertime dish. It's easy to make, great for picnics and cookouts and it's also a nice sandwich accompaniment.

This recipe is a great one to play around with. If you don't have artichoke hearts, try substituting cooked zucchini. No pimientos? Try diced cherry tomatoes. And for a really delicious variation, add some cooked diced bacon.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 15-oz. can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 12-oz. jar artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • 1 Tbsp diced pimientos
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste


  1. Combine the beans, artichoke hearts and pimientos in a glass bowl. Add the oil, vinegar and parsley, and toss gently until everything is evenly coated.

  2. Season to taste with the salt, pepper and cayenne.

  3. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving.

takes a dash of irony, Member everymanjack

Where to begin. Without its resemblance to the cover of Family Circle or Redbook ca. 1970 the dish is nothing. It tastes like what it is: two cans of vegetables chilled with oil & vinegar and salt & pepper. It might work if contextualized with a Douglas Sirk picture and frozen hors d’oeuvres, perhaps pigs-in-a-blanket. On no account would I recommend replacing the pimentos with anything fresh.
