Cannellini Bean Salad

If you're looking for an extremely healthy, super fast side dish, here you go. This cannellini bean salad is great served cold or at room temperature. It can be served as a side dish for chicken or fish, or with canned tuna added to up the protein content. You can substitute fresh herbs for fresh. I added basil along with oregano to this batch.

2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. minced red onion
3/4 t. dried oregano (if using fresh herbs, add 2 - 3 T.)
1 seedless cucumber, diced
1 15 oz. Cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 red bell pepper, diced
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Whisk together oil, vinegar, onion, and oregano in a large mixing bowl.

Add cucumbers, beans, and bell pepper. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
