Prep: 23 minutes; other: 8 hoursChickpeas, which are popular in southern Italy, and cannellini beans, which are preferred in northern Italy, come together to offer variety in texture and flavor. Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are firm and lend an earthy, nutty flavor, while cannellini beans (white kidney beans) are mild, slightly sweet, and creamy. Add a quick vinaigrette, fresh herbs, and chopped vegetables for a tasty side salad that complements chicken or lamb.
