The “Keep it Flexible” Pesto Bean Salad with Fresh Basil & Radish

pesto beans on marble

Serve it alone as a salad or on top of thick-sliced crusty bread topped with goat cheese. Don’t have cannelloni beans on hand? Switch them out for any other white bean like butter beans. Basil can also be substituted with any leafy green such as arugula. I like to keep this recipe simple by using store-bought pesto.

This easy to make recipe by Milk & Marigolds is spring inspired and full of freshness and flavour.  Follow my instagram account & recipes at: @milkandmarigolds

How are you getting your Vitamin D these days? Did you know that mushrooms are the only natural (non-fortified) plant source of Vitamin D?

This warm mushroom salad is both sweet and savoury and full of nutrients.
