3 large, ripe tomatoes
2 cups cooked white beans (like Cannellini or Great Northern)
½ pound haricot verts (or green beans), lightly blanched (keep them crunchy!)
1 huge handful basil, sliced in chiffonade
Extra-virgin olive oil, to taste
Maldon salt, to taste
Mix fresh tomatoes, haricot verts and Cannellini beans with plenty of basil. A few twirls of olive oil gives richness. A sprinkle of Maldon salt and a few turns of the pepper mill finish this fresh and delicious salad. Optional add -ins: black nicoise olives & chopped garlic.
