3-Bean Salad

November 12, 2012  |  Food

I had this huge craving for beans a couple of days ago. It was so odd, I just felt that I needed to have a bean salad. My entire mind was just thinking about it. Craving for KFC, craving for carbonara, craving for Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream… sure. Craving for beans?! I eventually succumbed to my cravings and found a really tasty but yet healthy 3-bean salad recipe that I would like to share with everyone here.

  • Cook: 5 mins
  • Ready In: 15 mins

Simple 15 minute 3-bean recipe that is low calorie, healthy and really tasty.



  1. Finely dice up the celery and Red Onion.
  2. Find a large bowl and combine all the beans, celery and red onion. Stir and mix them up.
  3. To prepare the vinaigrette, mince up the garlic. Whisk the oregano, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, sugar and some salt and pepper together.
  4. Pour the vinaigrette into the large bowl containing the bean mixture and stir them together. Add salt and pepper to taste if necessary.
  5. Let the salad sit for an hour before serving. Voila!

This recipe is sooo simple and tastes so good. It yields 4 servings, approximately 350 calories each serving and a good dose of protein – 15grams. This is good for a healthy lunch. I have split them up into 4 portions and deep froze them for my mom’s and my lunch this week.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe!
