Meatless Monday: Fennel & Gigante Beans Robust Salad

I believe in lettuce-free salads. Yes, occasionally I use Romaine or Boston lettuce (or arugula and spinach), but usually my salads rely on other ingredients as their base. In this case, I used fennel and Gigante beans with a few fun additions to make a robust salad that can stand on its own as a meal.

Meatless Monday: Fennel & Gigante Beans Robust Salad
fennel, thinly sliced
Gigante beans {or any other white beans you like}
hearts of Palm, thinly sliced
radishes, thinly sliced
olive oil
Meyer lemon juice
salt & pepper

1. Mix together the first five ingredients. 
2. Dress the salad with Meyer lemon juice and olive oil, and season with salt & pepper.

This is the perfect salad for Meatless Monday and first day of Spring. I can't wait until it's tomato season though!!
