picnic perfect bean salad

Summer is fast approaching and that means BBQs, potlucks, and picnics! This salad is a great side to any summer meal, and it only takes a minute to make! So you can focus on the beautiful weather rather than slaving away in a kitchen. (Although I do love slaving away in the kitchen, I can spend all day in there!)

picnic perfect bean salad

  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives or green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can black eyed peas

for the dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all dressing ingredients in a jelly jar. Close the jar and shake it up! This is my go-to salad dressing; simple and delicious.

Chop your celery and herbs. Drain and rinse both cans of beans. Gently fold everything together in a large mixing bowl, including the dressing. You really can't get a bean salad any easier than this!

Try it with different beans or different herbs, anything goes!

Tastes and looks great on my plate from Wings Hawaii :)
