Top tips for making Herby White Bean Salad:
- Make the dressing a your serving bowl. To decrease the amount of dishes used, make your dressing in the bowl you’re going to serve the salad in.
- Marinate onions in dressing to lessen their bite. If you’re someone that doesn’t love onions as much as we do, then soaking them in the dressing for 10-15 minutes beforehand helps to reduce their bite.
- Make the salad ahead of time for the best flavour. If you have the time, making this salad the day before serving means you give it time for the flavour to develop and soak in.
