Sorry for my absence. I was living it up in NYC at BlogHer! Of course what does the husband want to have for dinner my first day back? Pizza. ugh.

My solution… Order a small to minimize leftovers and make a simple salad on the side. Genius right?!? Sorry.. patting myself on the back for this one. Pizza is by far me weakness. So I had one slice and a cup of this salad for a wonderful, satisfying dinner! Quick White Bean, Tomato & Spinach Salad

You may have noticed that anytime I put “Quick” in front of an idea it using some convenience item. This time it’s a store bought light italian dressing. Normally I like to experiment with my own combination of ingredients to use as dressing but having a light italian on hand is great in a pinch!

  • 1 can of Northern (White) Beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes halved
  • 1-2 cups of raw spinach chopped
  • 1/4 of Red Onion chopped (or more to taste)
  • 2 tbsp of your favorite Light Italian Dressing

Toss all ingredients together and eat! Really… that’s exactly what I did although letting it sit probably would have been a good idea. I’m sure it will be even better tomorrow. :) I had to make it fast to pair it with that pizza.

Nutritional Information will vary based on your dressing but here’s an estimate. My normal site is down for calculations so I couldn’t pull a sugar figure.

    I totally pigged out on homemade pizza tonight…healthy toppings, but um, 4 slices was a bit much ya think? Next time I’m doing a big salad on the side so I can pace myself.
