Bean, Red Onion, and Parsley Salad

This salad is so easy I had to read to recipe twice to believe it, and it's just as delicious.  It uses cannellini beans - I do believe I am in love with them!  They are the perfect bean for so many recipes - salads, soups, hummus - you name it.  Maybe it's because they make me dream of Italy.... To top it off, I found them dirt cheap at the food outlet I frequent.  I grabbed a bunch of cans, but now I'm wishing I had bought the entire shelf!

That's it!
