    1 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans
    1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced (about 3 tablespoons)
    1 bunch arugula, thick stems removed, washed and dried, about 1 cup, packed
    1 T. extra virgin olive oil
    1 T. balsamic vinegar
    Handful washed basil leaves, roughly chopped
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    5 grinds black pepper
    1 cup chopped tomato


Empty the cans of beans into a colander and rinse them briefly under cold water. Drain thoroughly and empty the colander into a large serving bowl. Toss the beans together with the red onion and arugula.

Shake the olive oil, vinegar, chopped basil, salt and pepper in a sealable container until the salt is dissolved. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. It's best to make and dress the salad about an hour before you serve it. Let it stand at room temperature, tossing every time you think about it. Just before serving, adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste.

Top with chopped tomatoes.
