One of my favorite bean salads is this right here. It goes so well alongside almost any type of summer meal.
It is made with fresh onions, peppers, cucumber and two different types of beans.
That is all mixed with a can of creamed corn or canned corn along with parmesan cheese.
absolutely delicious and is healthy because it is packed full of fiber and protein.
WHAT CAN GO INTO A BEAN SALAD
- Any type of bean really, I have used Kidney beans before too.
- Cubed roma tomatoes
HOW LONG WILL BEAN SALAD KEEP IN FRIDGE
My bean salad will last ruffly 3 days fresh. However if you add avocados or tomatoes etc to it. I would make sure it is eaten on the very day you make it!
This bean salad is tossed in the most delicious parmesan olive oil garlic sauce.
You are going to love it!
The canned corn in this recipe, really helps to tie together the whole salad.
However, you can always use frozen corn in replace of that if you do not have it on hand.
I like to make this bean salad at least once per month. It will keep in my fridge for a few days and can serve a crowd easily.
