Refreshing cannellini salad and kitchen! kitchen!

Cannellini Salad With Cucumbers
This is the same salad as in my previous posting dated
Oct. 3, 2011 -"Pan Seared Steak with Cannellini Salad".
Make a can of cannellini as your blank canvas, add some sliced
 red onions, mozzarella, goat cheese, or maybe blue cheese for a bit of spunk;
a pint of yellow or red grape tomatoes, and basil for touches of color.
The result? A dish,  just like a painting to be enjoyed
and nourish the soul.
You may add an ingredient or two to your dish or take out one as long as the result is delicious and to be enjoyed by your family and friends. I added some diced english cucumbers to the salad and a squeeze of 1/2 a lime with extra virgin olive oil. Let the salad stand for a half hour for all the ingredients to absorb the lemon and olive oil. It is a great accompaniment to any meat dishes. It makes everything taste light and refreshing.
