I love white beans in salads – and they are a great addition to the Romaine lettuce salad with classic Caesar dressing. So good! Everybody raved about this recipe, even the kids! While this salad wins the prize of being everyone’s favorite, it is extra special for those of us on gluten free diet, because it is gluten free!

I think what makes this salad especially delicious is the creaminess of everything: avocados, cannellini beans, Caesar dressing. The salad is rich in natural fats, fiber, protein, and makes a great lunch or even a full meal!

    Love the idea of adding beans to a Caesar Salad! I can totally see how that flavor combo works. And the avocado is a fun, zippy surprise flavor! Good stuff — thanks.
