Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time


2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
1 Tablespoon dry white wine
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 (15-ounce) can Great Northern beans

Whisk together the sage, white wine, vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a large, shallow bowl.

Meanwhile, heat the beans in their liquid in the microwave or in a small saucepan until just simmering.

Drain and rinse the beans, and add them to the sage mixture.

Toss the beans to coat them thoroughly with the dressing.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the salad sit 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Heating the beans before tossing them with the dressing helps infuse them with all the flavors.

I had never used fresh sage before and did not know what to expect - it was delicious! And very different for our family. I doubled up on the dressing and added bow tie pasta. It got rave reviews and it was easy!!
