High-Protein White Bean Salad

This is a traditional Bosnian salad, I used to enjoy it as a kid on hot summer days, because it's served chilled. As an adult now, I've upped the nutritional value by adding organic hemp hearts, which makes it a high-protein and quick to assemble, nutritious lunch salad. Serve it with rice and you have complete protein meal. Enjoy!

Prep Time 15 minutes

Yields:  1-2 Servings


  • 1 can (15oz) organic cannellini beans (31 grams of protein)

  • 3 tbsp organic hemp seeds (10 grams of protein)

  • In a large bowl add rinsed beans and all the ingredients, mix well until combined.
