Three Bean Salad
Remember 3 bean salad? It's a classic American salad - maybe it's out of style, but it's a great idea. Healthy, filling but light, tasty salad great for hot days or outdoor picnics. Making your own make it taste fresher and more crisp, but is still easy. Use canned chick peas, and canned kidneys. Steam some green beans until just done - still bright green and crisp. Then mix it all together with your favorite vinaigrette dressing. Don't forget salt and pepper, maybe a mustard or some herbs. I like to make a more vinegary dressing than with a conventional salad because the beans soak up the flavors. Eat with crusty bread.
