Mint and White Bean Salad

Ashley Ramsey


My mother and stepdad came into town to visit my husband and I. We ventured to a new restaurant that supported local farmers, Elk Creek Cafe, which was amazing.

The dish I selected came with a salad very similar to this. I love onion and mint and it is not very often that you can have both at the same time!

Hope you enjoy my creation inspired by Elks Creek Cafe.
