This nutritious combination will satisfy without weighing you down. Rosemary, a Mediterranean native whose Latin name means "dew of the sea," is perfect to unite the flavors of this robust salad.

Directions
  1. Drain and cook beans in simmering water until tender, about 40 minutes. (Beans have better flavor if you add 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and garlic powder or a spoonful of miso and a sprig of marjoram the last 15 minutes of cooking.) You can also use precooked, organic canned beans.
  2. In a blender or food processor, add the garlic, rosemary, vinegars, salt and pepper. Blend while slowly adding the olive oil.
  3. Add the beans, arugula, tomatoes and olives to a large salad bowl. Pour desired amount of the dressing over and mix and combine. Serve at room temperature.
