On My Hearth: White Bean and Tomato Salad
Beren and I are going to pack a little picnic lunch, it's much too beautiful to be indoors today! He'll likely be eating fried chicken (groan) but my contribution will be considerably healthier!
I'll pair this salad with some fresh fruit, bit of cheese and crackers and an indulgent glass of chardonnay. It's a day for celebrating, after all!
