Sun-dried tomatoes can add another flavor profile to your favorite foods. They're a tasty complement to bold flavors such as goat cheese, but can also give frittatas, pizza and bread a unique spin. I love to add them to my white bean salad because the flavor and presentation all goes perfectly on a toasted slice of French bread. You can find canned, jarred or bagged sun-dried tomatoes at your local supermarket. They're convenient to cook with because they come ready to serve and no prep is needed.

  • 3/4 cup canned white beans, unsalted, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 bay leaf, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 ozs goat cheese, crumbled
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 small French baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch slices, toasted
