My parent's vegetable garden was very bountiful this year, in an effort to jazz up some green beans that they gave me I put together this three bean salad.
Recipe from Country Cleaver.
Ingredients:-1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
-2 tablespoon sugar
-2 tablespoon vegetable oil
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-2 cups green beans, blanched
-1 15.5 can garbonzo beans, rinsed
-1 15.5 can kidney beans, rinsed
-1 large shallot, minced
-1 clove garlic, minced
In a large bowl stir together green beans, garbonzo beans, and kidney beans. Whisk together sugar, oil, salt, pepper, garlic and shallots. Pour the mixture over the top and stir the beans to combine until all vegetables are coated in sauce. Cover chill in the fridge to and allow the flavors to meld. Serve chilled.
I thought this turned out good, it would be a good side dish for a picnic. I'm not a big fan of kidney beans (I learned that now), but the blanched green beans added a nice textural element to the dish.
