3 Bean Salad

3 Bean Salad


3 Bean Salad is such a simple dish and extremely easy to make.  I think it tastes great.  I use it as a  lunch item as I can take a jar in and eat it all week!  Sometimes you just don’t want to have the same old salad “healthy” lunch – I like to switch it up!

If you have a different bean preference you can surely substitute (I know many bean salads have wax beans in them – but it’s my preference to not have them).  Also, depending on the container you have them stored in – you may need more or less of the vinegar brine.  You want the beans to be basically covered in the liquid so they absorb the good flavor.  I liked using a mason jar because you can pack the beans in tightly and not need as much liquid to cover the beans.
