Three Bean Salad
This delicious three bean salad is a quick and easy potluck salad or a side dish that takes 10 minutes to make. Tossed in a sweet and tangy dressing, it's the perfect accompaniment to so many mains.
Neli Howard | Delicious Meets Healthy
15-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
15-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
loosely packed fresh, finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
apple cider vinegar
extra virgin olive oil
or sweetener of choice
Make the salad:
In a large mixing bowl, mix the 3 different types of beans, red onion, the cucumber, and parsley.
Make the dressing:
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add the dressing to the beans, and toss the salad to coat everything.
Chill and Serve:
Transfer the salad to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the beans to soak up the flavor of the dressing. Serve.
Drain and rinse the beans well to remove the salty and metallic flavors.
Let the salad sit for at least 30 minutes before serving to let the flavors develop.
The dressing can be made up to 5 days ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
I use honey instead of sugar to create that sweet-tangy flavor that is also healthier. It's a great alternative if you are looking for a no-sugar 3 bean salad.
