Three Bean Salad


During the summer I love nothing more than having cool, tasty salads for dinner.  

I especially love when the salad is so easy to assemble, like the Three Bean Salad.


1 - 15oz can of Garbanzo beans, drained
1 - 15 oz can of Cut Green Beans, drained
1 - 15 oz can of Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 Small Red Onion, cut into 1/4" pieces



Add all of the beans into a large bowl.


Dressing:
 1/4 c Sugar
1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
Freshly Cracked Ground pepper

In a smaller bowl add all the ingredients for the dressing and mix well.

Pour the dressing over the beans and toss until the beans are coated well.

This salad is best when it has had some time to sit in the dressing in the fridge.

Here's a hint:
When you peel the red onion and cut into the onion and it's a bit strong place it in a bowl of cold ice water for a few minutes.  Let the onion dry out on a paper towel for a few minutes and the strong smell and taste should be minimal or disappear.




Enjoy your summer!
