I love bean salad, but commercial bean salads are full of yucky chemicals and junk and bean salad is actually SUPER easy to make. Here’s my go-to recipe (serves 8):
2C chopped green beans
2C chopped pepper (about 2 peppers – I used multiple colors)
1/4 onion, minced
1 500ml can of black beans
1 500ml can of kidney beans
2T avocado oil
3T apple cider vinegar
1T Dijon mustard
1/2t garlic powder
1t dried tarragon (or about 1T fresh)
Pink salt & pepper (to taste)
Mix all ingredients and allow to sit. This is a great make-ahead salad and is even better the next day!
Optional: lightly blanch the green beans by putting them in boiling water for 1 minutes (until they soften slightly and become bright green). Rinse with ice water to stop cooking.
