Oil-free Three Bean Salad

Bean salads are perfect in summer when you can take them to barbecues and potlucks. But they also work well any time of year, especially if you’re looking for a bit more variety.

Lettuce and leafy greens are great, but not every salad needs to have them.

Try out this oil-free Three Bean Summer Salad recipe from The Glowing Fridge for a change of pace on the salad front.

The ingredients for the main salad are:

  • cannellinni beans
  • pinto beans
  • kidney beans
  • corn (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • sugar snap peas (frozen peas can work too)

Salad dressing ingredients:

  • red wine vinegar
  • balsamic vinegar
  • fresh lemon juice
  • maple syrup
  • Dijon mustard
  • sea salt (optional)
  • black pepper

Feel free to use any three kinds of beans that you prefer or happen to have on hand.

If beans tend to cause you a bit of discomfort, you may want to skip the lentils and chickpeas as these often seem to cause people more issues. Also be sure to rinse the beans thoroughly and try to find salt-free options.

And if you don’t want to skip the greens, you can serve the bean salad over lettuce—romaine goes well. Or iceberg lettuce can add a nice crisp texture.
