    3 - 4 Bean Salad

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    An old fashioned salad filled with flavor, fiber and a good source of protein too.

    List of Ingredients

    3-4 cans various beans(green, navy, kidney and rinsed black beans or garbanzo make a tasty combination)
    c sugar (I use Splenda granulated)
    2/3 c vinegar (I like rice wine or white wine vinegar)
    1/3 c canola or extra virgin olive oil
    Optional mix and match additions (I personally like to add all of them:
    c chopped onion
    1/3 c finely chopped celery
    2 T finely chopped roasted red pepper (from a jar)
    Dash of black pepper


    1-Open cans and pour beans in a colander to drain while you prepare other items.
    2-Combine vinegar and oil and mix well, adding black pepper if desired.
    3-Chop any of the optional vegetables and add to dressing.
    4-Place beans in a dish that can be covered; pour dressing mixture over the top. Mix gently, cover and place in refrigerator for a few hours.

    Note: I like to make this a day or two ahead so the flavors fully blend.
