Creamy white beans and smokey bacon come together in this bold and tangy white bean salad. This easy, hearty, gluten free dinner salad takes just 5 minutes of cooking time and is ready start to finish in 25 minutes.
I have been in the worst cooking funk lately. I have piles of recipes that I’ve torn from magazines (yeah, I still do that), pinned to Pinterest, saved on Instagram, or flagged in my voluminous cookbook collection, and I haven’t had the motivation to make a single one.
Perhaps it’s because my kids have been picky AF of late, or because Cameron was traveling a lot, or because the winter malaise is firmly rooted and I just don’t wanna. Or laziness. Or the fact that breakfast for dinner is just so damn delicious (and let’s face it, easy).
So it’s with great enthusiasm that I present you with this recipe for white bean salad with bacon and arugula. It’s done a bang-up job of cracking my cooking funk, despite the fact that there is very little actual cooking required.
This white bean salad is easy, filling, and comes together in a snap. The ingredients might be humble, but the flavor is anything but – it’s bold, smokey and complex, with a tangy finish that makes the minimal cooking required 100% worth the effort.
