I’ve been itching to try another summer salad. My grocery budget money quickly thinned with the many trips I took to the store over the past week and I didn’t want to stop yet again for one or two ingredients, so I do what I do best and I looked at a few 3 Bean Salad recipes and I improvised with what I had on hand!
This is what I came up with:
1 Can of Garbanzo Beans (aka Chickpeas)
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can of Green Beans
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 Cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of olive oil
4-5 TBSP Sugar
1 Tsp salt
1/4 Tsp Pepper
1/4 Tsp garlic powder (although if I had a garlic clove you bet your butt I would have used it instead.)
(Really if I make this again though I would 1/2 the dressing recipe as I seemed to have quite a bit in access)
Rinse the heck out of all your canned beans.
Mix the beans and onion in a bowl.
Mix the dressing ingredients, whisk until blended.
Pour dressing on beans and chill in the fridge.
Have I mentioned HOW EASY all these salads are?
