When I think of beans I typically don’t think of a salad, but surprisingly beans are the perfect main ingredient for this hearty yet equally refreshing salad. I love making a huge bowl of this in the warmer months and serving it as a side with dinners, or taking it to family picnics. It’s practically no cook and can be made in a pinch.
The light sweet and tangy dressing pairs so perfectly with the beans, and a touch of fresh parsley brings this whole dish together.
You can of course add any other veggies you like into this salad but I love using as many different colours as possible to make the salad look irresistible. I find that sweeter vegetables such as corn and red peppers work the best with this salad.
So what do you think? Will you be making this salad with all of those extra cans of beans you collected over the winter that are just taking up space in your pantry?
