White Bean and Cucumber Salad

Recipe Description
A quick salad to put together as a side dish or as a quick lunch. The original recipe was from Woman's Day magazine and called for a lemon/olive oil dressing with fresh cilantro, but I altered the ingredients to utilize what ingredients I alway have on-hand (salsa and Italian dressing). The original recipe called for white beans but I'm sure you could also use black beans, black eyed peas, red beans or kidney beans!!!​
Preparation Steps:
Level of Difficulty:
Time Needed:
1 can white beans
2 cucumbers, cut into slices or 1/2 moons (peel if desired)
1/2 medium onion, sliced or diced
up to 1/4 cup salsa (your choice of heat)
1/4 cup bottled Italian dressing​
Combine salsa and Italian dressing until blended. Combine remaining ingredients in bowl. Pour dressing over veggies/beans and stir to coat. Refrigerate a few hours to let flavors meld.​
