WHITE BEAN SALAD WITH GRILLED ZUCCHINI AND FOUR HERBS

White Bean Salad with Grilled Zucchini and Four Herbs

Beans, we can’t just leave them behind just because Spring is here. I am a bean lover, preferably white ones and as there are so many varieties of white beans, I never tire of eating them. And the fact that they are good for you doesn’t diminsh their attraction. But when it gets warmer, I tend to serve them in a different way, lighter and without meat, like this one here, by adding some grilled zucchini slices and lots of herbs, you get a lovely white bean salad that just screams summer.
