EASY THREE BEAN SALAD


This recipe was born straight out of an "I need fiber!" fit (we all know what sparks one of those), and was based solely upon what I had on hand in the kitchen. Lucky for me, it turned out great! It's nice and light for summer, and packed with protein and fiber. Yum. Give it a try...

1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can sweet corn, drained and rinsed
A handful of white mushrooms (about 5 or 6), thinly sliced
1 small white onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 green onion, sliced
1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite Italian dressing, to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chuck everything into a big bowl and stir. You're done.
  • Enjoy!
