Chicken & White Bean Salad

When I started posting recipes I had no idea I'd end up with so many salad recipes. And really, until the past couple years, I was mainly just your basic potato salad-type of person; can't recall many others that I ate. But for whatever reason, I now seem to eat a lot of them! This one's from Cooking Light. I add the tomatoes in very gently at the end so they don't disintegrate.

Whisk together the following for the vinaigrette:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper

Drizzle vinaigrette over the following and gently combine:
2 cups coarsely chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3 cup slivered fresh basil
2 16-oz. cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
