No-Cook Cannellini Salad with Pesto Dressing

No-Cook Cannellini Salad with Pesto Dressing

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

A cook who has a delicious prepared pesto within arm's reach is a bit like a woman who owns a perfect little black dress: Both are always ready at a moment's notice to face an expectant public. In this recipe, the pesto is tossed with white beans to create an elegant salad in a flash.
  • 2 19-oz. cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage
  • ⅔ cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 to 3 Tbs. prepared basil pesto
  • 1 Tbs. chopped capers

1. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Let stand 15 to 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Serve at room temperature.
