Three Bean Salad with Red Peppers #Recipe

Friday, October 07, 2011 Posted by Aleksandra Nearing

This is a favorite summer salad we make often.  You can try it with different beans, add celery and different colored bell peppers for a bright, festive look.  Here I used the following:

garbanzo beans
black beans
red kidney beans
1 medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
half a medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup salad vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Rinse your beans.

Chop bell pepper, onion and celery (if using, I forgot to add the celery here!).

Mix equal parts olive oil and salad vinegar.  I add salt and freshly ground pepper.

Whisk your dressing until it thickens a bit.

Combine all ingredients and enjoy!  I serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.   If you keep it too cold, the dressing congeals too much.
