Crunchy Three Bean Salad.

This Summer-like weather calls for simple, refreshing recipes that can be enjoyed before the sun goes down. I especially love the crunch from the celery. De-lish!

1/2 small onion, minced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can cut green beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Feta cheese crumbles
Directions: Combine onion, celery, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and green beans in a mixing bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seed, and black pepper to bean mixture; gently stir to coat. Cover bowl and chill completely 2 to 4 hours. Top with feta cheese crumbles and serve.



  1. I like this idea. Simple and fresh for the spring!

  2. Looks and sounds wonderful! What time is dinner?
