"I love all beans," says Mario Batali. "Especially in dishes like this one, with a couple of different beans that make a great textural combination." The recipe here calls for tossing the beans with a sweet basil dressing, though Batali also suggests a "cool" way to serve them: "Make a row of green beans and spoon the white beans on top with the vinaigrette." More Recipes From Mario Batali
