White Bean Salad with Tomatoes and Olives
Canned beans are a convenient shortcut, but we hoped to fool eaters into thinking we'd spent hours in the kitchen.
Why This Recipe Works
We take ordinary canned beans and turn them into the rightful stars of this salad. The key is steeping the beans in a garlicky broth first. This affords us time to tame our raw shallots in vinegar, and pull together the other ingredients. Once the beans are steeped, and the shallots soaked, this salad comes together in a minute.
