Three Bean Salad

This Three Bean Salad is the perfect side dish for your summer BBQ’s or next family gathering!

Make 8 (1/2 cup) servings

This Three Bean Salad is so easy to throw together and most of us have these ingredients all ready at home. This salad is a perfect side dish for work potlucks, BBQ’s, picnics, or even at your next family reunion.

Years ago I tried a three bean salad that was made with canned green beans, which is pretty common, and very delicious.

You can easily substitute the black beans for green beans or try them both and see which one you like best- I must say…both are equally delicious! 

In a large mixing bowl, combine canned beans, celery, and thawed corn.

In a separate small mixing bowl combine, extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sugar substitute, salt, and pepper.

Mix until well combined.

Pour dressing over bean salad. Toss until evenly coated.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until serving.

Love this salad. I cut the salt in half, added the juice of 1 lime and added some red sweet peppers. Very filling, very low point salad.

love bean salads! So versatile, goid source of protein/fiber. you can add extra veggies like diced peppers & sweet onion etc. & cheese (adjust fir points!) If I use green beans I usually get frozen &defrost; I find canned too mushy.
