Recording the journey…and knitting

Three bean salad June 20, 2012

I am having an off week, am I not?  Forgot yesterday should have been the recipe and today the WIP…Oh well it’s a nice shake up and I meant to do it.  That’s my story and I am sticking to it like glue.

OK, so this is a brand new favorite and even though I have only made it once, I will be making this for a long time to come!

1 can kidney beans

1 can chick peas

1 can pinto beans

2 stalks celery, chopped fine

1/2 onion diced fine

Dressing ingredients

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup sugar

a few sprigs of fresh thyme

salt and pepper to taste


You could make beans from dried, you only need about 2 cups prepared beans, each kind.  You could also change the beans up-use any you enjoy.

In a jar add all the  dressing ingredients and, cover tightly, and shake until blended.  Drain and rinse beans.  In a big bowl, add every thing together with the dressing and let sit for at least an hour in the fridge.  Great to bring to a picnic!
