Three Bean Salad

A delicious side dish that can be brought to a picnic, pot luck dinner, party or family get together. It is easy to put together the night before and taste better the next day.  It just takes three different cans of different beans and chopped onion.  The dressing is just sugar, vinegar, oil and spices.

I had cooked a bag of dried dark kidney beans in my pressure cooker to divide up into packages for my freezer. This way I would have them ready to use for chili. I saved a cup and a half to use in this salad.  Every once in a while I get hungry for this simple salad that is one of my favorite.
