Preparation / Directions:
In a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk together well.
Drain the dried beans, and place them in a small saucepan with enough cold salted water to cover by about 3 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to a low simmer until the beans are tender but not mushy, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Drain, rise with cold water, and allow to cool to room temperature. (If using canned beans, drain and rinse well).
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, beans, tomatoes, and basil. Stir the dressing well, add just enough to moisten the ingredients (you will have some dressing left over), and toss to coat. Crumble the goat cheese over the top and serve.
