Cannellini Beans/White Bean Salad

After making Cannellini curry some days before, I can surely say that Cannellini Beans are my new favrioute.  It is very refreshing and perfect for the weather.
I made it on Sunday for light lunch. It was quick and tasty.

1-Canned cannellini beans drained
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 c. finely chopped onions
2 T finely chopped cilantro/coriander/dhaniya
1/2 t salt
¼ cup chopped cucumber
¼ cup chopped tomato
Black pepper as per taste
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Place the beans in a large bowl. Add olive oil, onions, tomato ,cilantro, cucumber, salt, lemon juice and pepper to taste. Stir gently. Serve at room temperature.

Tip:- If you do not find canned beans, then soak the beans overnight and next day boil them with little salt.
-Any kind of beans can be used for this recipe; example- kidney beans, lima beans, black eyed beans etc.
