This beautiful, hearty, satisfying salad can be made in under 20 minutes, and you probably have a majority of the ingredients already stocked in your fridge or pantry. The salad is comprised of a quick dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Pile on the cannellini beans, halved grape tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and lots of peppery arugula (feel free to use romaine or mixed greens if arugula isn't your favorite). Top with Parmesan for the finishing touch right before serving. You can pump up the veggies even more in this salad by adding a chopped cucumber and some thinly sliced red onion.
