I liked it but the rest of the family was less enthusiastic. I did serve it over a bed of greens. If I made it again, I'd probably use different beans (kidney maybe), increase the tomato, cut the oil in half and add a bit of crumbled feta to the top.
White Bean and Roasted Chicken Salad
Users rave about this 5-ingredient salad that combines pre-cooked roasted chicken breasts with white beans and fresh basil. For a quick finishing touch, drizzle with a lemon, vinegar, and Dijon mustard dressing and serve with a glass of iced tea or white wine.
