Summer Bean Salad
1 can navy beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
1 minced clove garlic
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Combine all of the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
For the vinaigrette, combine the garlic, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk the oil into the other ingredients and whisk until everything comes together in a creamy consistency (this is an emulsion).
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad before serving.
