Default Infamous 3 Bean Salad

I've leant my book to a friend and it's not posted (as far as I can tell) in the recipe forum.

Anyone have access to the Infamus 3 Bean Salad? I want to make it with dinner for tonight and think I have at least 3 kinds of beans to do it with

I saw a 4-bean recipe and just want to see what differs.

Thanks!

FOUND IT!!!!

3-Bean Salad - Phase I

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 19 oz. can green beans
1 19 oz. can yellow (wax) beans
1 19 oz. can kidney or black or mixed beans

Rinse the beans under cold water and drain well.

Add chopped onion, celery, parsley, red pepper.
Season with salt and pepper and coriander or cumin. I sometimes add chili powder.

Add olive oil and vinegar and stir it up. (You can use Italian dressing instead of the oil and vinegar.)

Let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. It keeps well. I sometimes throw it on top of greens and serve with a hard boiled egg for lunch.

A serving would be a cup of this which keeps your legume serving to the recommended Ĺ cup. Using 19 oz. cans, this makes about 6+ cups.

<drool> Your HB is one lucky girl to have such dinners!

I love 3 bean salad...it's so yummy, slightly sweet so it eases my sweet tooth, and the combo of protein, fiber, veggies, and a bit of good fat just makes you so full and leaves you full for hours. It's a wonder food!
