Three Bean Salad With Celery

Rating: 4.5 stars 41
This salad recipe is great for summer picnics. It's delicious, quick, and easy to make. You can substitute the variety of beans in this recipe with other types and still have a great bean salad. I sometimes use cannellini beans in place of the green beans and it still tastes great!

Mediterranean Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
This is an easy, healthy salad that is a great side dish to BBQ chicken, beef or fish! It can also be easily adapted to a Tex-Mex style by changing the lemon to lime, parsley to cilantro and adding ground cumin and/or chili powder! Be sure to add the lemon zest (or lime zest) as this really adds a ZING to the salad!

This is great for barbeques, picnics, or just to have refrigerated to serve with a sandwich for lunch. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor.

Fabulous Hot Five Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
This dish is served hot, and is the best bean salad I've ever had. I make it with black beans, kidney beans, green beans, wax beans, and garbanzo beans. You may not like one or more of the types of beans listed above - just substitute your favorites. This dish is especially good for taking to potluck suppers.
