Three-Bean Salad

This is my all-time favorite recipe for three-bean salad!  My sister Joann gave me the recipe years ago and I’ve made it for many potlucks over the years.  It’s a great way to use up the abundant green bean harvest this time of year!



Three-Bean Salad


1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzos, drained and rinsed
1 small red onion, finely sliced
1 cup fresh green beans

1 tsp. minced garlic or to taste
2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 Cup olive oil

Steam the green beans for 5 minutes and combine with beans.

Combine the garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil and pour over beans.  

Serve chilled.
