Three Bean Salad

Three Bean Salad photoThree bean salad is the most basic of the bean salad recipes. This little gem of a salad is often overlooked by people who spend hours searching for the exotic. A little trick I use sometimes is to add a handful of roasted peanuts just before serving to add some crunch. This isn’t cheating because the peanut is a bean and not a nut.

Ingredients

1 16 oz can (450 grams) green beans
1 16 oz can (450 grams) kidney beans
1 16 oz can (450 grams) wax beans
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper (capsicum)
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/2 cup salad oil
1/4 tsp black ground pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped red onion
Roasted peanuts (optional)

Instructions

Drain the three kinds of beans and place them in a bowl.

Add all ingredients except the onion.

Mix well and chill several hours.

Add peanuts (optional) and onion before serving.

Adjust quantities to suit the number of people being served.
