Three Bean Salad
¼ cup vinegar (Red wine and white balsamic, or all one or the other or different kind!)
3 -4 TBSP olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
Pinch of crushed red pepper
½ tsp onion powder, dill
1-2 TBSP honey or sugar
Salt to taste
¼ tsp black pepper
2 cups green beans, trimmed cut into one-inch pieces
Half red onion, sliced thin and chopped finely
1 can kidney beans, well rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, well rinsed
2-3 stalks of Celery, finely diced
1/3 cup chopped parsley
Blanche green beans (Boil a few minutes then drain and place in a bowl of ice water).
Put all dressing ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.
Add beans, onions, celery, and parsley together.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This should last for several days but if it needs a little refreshing add more vinegar and salt.
