Skip the ‘Slaw, Pass the White Bean Salad!

Bean salads are a great choice for a quick, satisfying weeknight meal. Packed with flavor and texture, they're also an easy and healthful option for your next weekend get-together. Here's a favorite #healthyrecipe that's simple to prep ahead of time. #foodiefriday

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
3 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

*Did you know... rinsing canned vegetables can remove as much as 40% of the sodium used during the canning process?
