Want something light and refreshing for summer fare, make this cool white bean salad with cannellini beans, arugula, Kalamata olives, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and thyme.  Mix with a 1-1 ratio of lemon juice and olive oil.  For extra kick to the oil mixture, add a small amount of Dijon mustard.  Grilled chicken can be added for protein.
