Mixed Bean Salad
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
I added a can of butter beans and used red onion left in rings for colour. Excellent made a couple of days ahead. I'll make this recipe again. Janet. VFE
Have been looking for a recipe to copy one my grocery store, Dierbergs, made that I loved. This is it!!!
Hubby didn't think he would like this, but was pleasantly surprised that he did! I cut the sugar in half and it was still delicious. We both agreed that it could use a little more punch somehow, maybe from a fresh herb or a different vinegar.
This was great! For a change, use some chick peas and perhaps 1/2 red & 1/2 white kidney beans. Dressing does not overwhelm - which is great.
Very quick and easy too make. I made it for a salad luncheon and everyone thought it was wonderful.
This salad is way better than the ready-made (canned) 3-bean salads (from various brands) that you can buy in the store. Do yourself and your family a favor, go ahead and make this instead of buying a pre-made one. This serves more people, and tastes better, too.
Even though I don't care for canned vegetables, this was very good. The celery adds a nice crunch, and you can add in other fresh vegetables if you like--zucchini, pepper, cucumbers. If I make it again, I would cut the oil in half to cut some of the fat from an otherwise healthy salad. If you like "pickled" dishes, you'll like this!
