Gluten Free & Vegan
Using these ingredients you’ll either have already or can easily get from most supermarkets.
The homemade dressing is optional but adds that extra refreshing flavour.
You could always just mix in olive oil but I love the addition of cider vinegar and maple syrup.
The 3 beans I used were:
- Black Beans
- Canneillini Beans
- Kidney Beans
But you can use whatever beans you have in the cupboard.
Looking for swaps?
Beans for chickpeas/lentils
Veg – Use what you have
Coriander for parsley
Dressing for just olive oil
Looking to add even more? Here are some extra ideas:
Try adding in chopped onion (I can’t tolerate raw onion)
Spices such as smoked paprika
This 3 bean salad is incredibly quick and easy to make.
Firstly, add your drained and rinsed beans to a large mixing bowl along with your chopped veg of choice.
Finally adding the dressing ingredients and stir until well combined.
This recipe will serve 6 (side serving size).
But I love to double the recipe and batch make it as you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
It’s also gluten free & vegan so accommodates all.
And it’s absolutely packed full of veg so a great easy way to increase your veg and bean intake.
