It doesn’t get much easier!
I love having options like this when it’s hot, and I just don’t feel like cooking. But I can always open a can of beans and combine it with some flavorful ingredients to make a healthy meal.
And you may already have all the ingredients you need in your kitchen!
During the summer months, you’ll always find tomatoes and basil in my house. There are so many ways you can use them to make tasty warm-weather meals. Of course there’s the classic Cherry Tomato Penne Pasta. And they both star in Avocado Basil Pesto Pasta. In addition, they are great together in salads such as Watermelon Tomato Basil Salad.
In fact, I could eat a bowl of fresh tomatoes and basil and be perfectly happy!
I always recommend keeping some cans of beans and some fresh garlic in your pantry. Or even better, you can buy dried beans and make a few batches every week in your Instant Pot.
You might see white beans sold as Great Northern, Cannellini, or White Kidney. Any of these varieties will work in this salad. Since they have a subtle taste, I like to keep the other flavors simple so that they don’t overpower the white beans.
