Recipe: Three Bean Salad

This recipe for Three Bean Salad is another American classic salad. Most recipes are virtually the same… some differences in beans and types of vinegar but for the most part they are all very similar. You can either use cut yellow beans or cannelloni beans.

This one is one I’ve had in my file for years… I don’t know why I don’t make it more often… it is delicious… a terrific addition to any menu. It also multiplies out easily for large crowds…. Quick and easy… what could be better?

This recipe makes about 12 servings.

Recipe: Three Bean Salad

All you need:

1 can (15-16 ounces) cut green beans, drained and rinsed or frozen, thawed
1 can (15-16 ounces) cut yellow beans or cannelloni beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15-16 ounces) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
¼ cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped red onion
½ cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

All you need to do:

In a large bowl, combine the beans, onion and green pepper, mix thoroughly.
In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients, whisk to thoroughly mix.
Pour the dressing over the bean mixture and mix well.

Chill in the refrigerator for about 4 hours before serving.

I haven't had a bean salad in years, I don't know why...thanks for reminding me of a great salad!

This bean salad sounds fantastic. Love the dressing ingredients also! Perfect summer side dish!

I do love bean salad but avoid it now because of the sugar. It's great at a summer gathering because most people like it, probably because of the sugar.

I love 3 bean salad...but haven't had it in quite a while. Sounds delish :) Good to see you back!

Sounds great! I might add just a dash of crushed red pepper to make the flavors pop.
