  • 1 can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can whole artichokes drained and chopped in halves
  • 1/2 med onion chopped
  • 2 small cucumbers thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped/smashed
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp parsley I had dried on hand, but fresh would be great here
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Put beans, artichokes and cucumbers, garlic, and onion in a large bowl.
  • Next, add the lemon juice, olive oil, and vinegar over the top and toss with salad tongs or two big spoons. Be gentle so you don't smash the beans too much.
  • Add parsley, salt/pepper to taste.


Refrigerate the leftovers, this salad is even better the next day!
