Three bean salad

I am so not a fan of three bean salad that is served out of the can or on a salad bar. It just grosses me out to even think of eating the salad. However dh is a huge fan of three bean salad and would probably eat it everyday if my stomach could handle it. So for Father's Day I made him a three bean salad. I actually ate this and it did taste good. Very simple to make and yet the flavors were quite tasty together. I found this recipe here:
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 celery stalks, chopped fine
1/2 red onion, chopped fine
1 cup fresh, finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 Tbsp fresh finely chopped rosemary
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 In a large bowl, mix the beans, celery, onion, parsley and rosemary.
2 In a separate small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add the dressing to the beans. Toss to coat.
3 Chill beans in the refrigerator for several hours, to allow the beans to soak up the flavor of the dressing.
Serves 4 to 8.

  1. My grandma used to make this and I remember really liking it! I think she put something called wax beans in hers also they looked like a green bean only almost white. I will have to try this! Thanks!

  2. Oh yes the wax bean. I'm not a fan of the canned wax bean so finding this recipe that subbed for the wax bean was a stroke of luck. I hope you like it as much as we did.
