1/2 small red onion, chopped
1 plum tomato, chopped
1/2 cup chopped, pitted olives (like kalamata)
small bunch of arugula, kale, or spinach


2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or sherry vinegar)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tablespoon whole grain mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
zest of small lemon
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil


For the salad: In a medium bowl, add the beans, onion, tomatoes, olives, and arugula; toss.
