Quick Recipe- 3 Bean Salad

One of my favorite quick, easy and healthy recipes of all time. 3-4 bean salad. Normally eaten cold, it makes a great topping for salads or just snacking throughout the day. In my house this does not last very long at all. I have recently found that this recipe is even more amazing when made with organic canned beans. Also tastes best when you let it sit and marinate for a couple hours or more.

1 Can red kidney beans
1 Can green beans
1 Can Chick/ Garbanzo beans

1/2 medium onion diced
1/2 green or red bell pepper diced
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 cup oil
1/2-3/4 cup apple cider vinegar (depending on your taste)
1 1/2 Tbls sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Open all your cans and rinse all your beans in a colander, set aside to drain.
Dice up your onion, pepper and garlic, add to a large bowl.
Add oil,vinegar and sugar, mix. Add your rinsed and drained beans. Wait a couple hours. Enjoy.

As i always say, mix in whatever you like to this recipe to make it your own. Use whatever beans you like, most of the time i make this with a yellow wax bean too. Salt and pepper to your taste, as well as vinegar.

Let me know how you like this one!
