Tasty Bean Salad
- 1 can of 3 bean mix (I used O Organics Tri-Bean Blend)
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 cup of fresh green beans, chopped into 1″ pieces
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 celery stalk
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar (I used date sugar)
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
You’ll need a steamer pot/insert for the green beans.
Rinse the green beans and chop into 1″ pieces. Bring water to a boil in the steamer pot and add the green beans. Let these cook for only 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Dice up the onion and the celery stalk.
In a small bowl, put the 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper and mix it up well with a fork.
Open the can of beans and can of chick peas. Pour them both into a strainer and rinse them all well for 30-60 seconds under cold water.
In a larger mixing bowl, add the green beans, canned beans, chickpeas, diced onion and diced celery. Give it a good stir to mix up. Drizzle all of the dressing over the mixture and mix it up again. That’s it!
This is best served as a cold salad. Store in an air tight container for up to 7 days in the fridge. Works well for Meal Prep because of this.
