There are probably more bean salad recipes that haven't been created yet as opposed to those that have. In my case this is because every time I make this recipe it's never the same as the last one.
These salads are often called 3,4,5,or 7 bean.
The beauty of these dishes is that you can just keep adding stuff until you have enough to fill your bowl.
The list of ingredients is endless for all the versions you could make.
The usual recipes call for 3-7 different types of beans, usually canned,some oil/vinegar dressing, some veggies and spices.
I'm going to show you a simple one to start with, using a can of 6-bean variety rather than one can of each bean.
This is a great way to get a good variety of beans without having to make a giant salad.
Pour can of mixed beans into a colander and rinse off the sauce. Let water drain off and put beans into a large bowl.
Chop vegetables, mince garlic and mix with the beans.
Mix oil and vinegar with oregano and basel. The oil/vinegar should be about 50/50 but mix it to your preference.
Add dressing to a large bowl, stir and marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
Before serving drain dressing and transfer salad to a smaller bowl. If you prefer a stronger flavour just keep the salad in the dressing until it's eaten. This is a great salad to take out for a picnic lunch or for work in a small plastic container like this....
