Mediterranean White Bean Salad

I'm switching things up and doing a recipe today because I'm visiting my parents and of course their Internet is not working and of course no one knows how to fix it.  So you get a recipe today and obsessions tomorrow:)  I leave for my family beach vacay in less than two weeks,  so this Mama is on a strict salad diet trying to drop a few lbs before I have to rock a bikini in public.   I eat salads because one thing I'm not giving up is my vino.  Small sacrifices, right?  This Salad is light, fresh, and delicious!  It has so many great flavors.  It would be the perfect side dish to serve with some grilled fish or chicken.  I ate it for lunch several days in a row.  It saves really well and is oh so tasty.  Bon appetit!
