Whenever I need a dish for a summer potluck, I make this three-bean salad. It holds up well, and actually tastes better after sitting for a while. Beans are a nutritional powerhouse, as they are high in protein and antioxidants, and are an excellent source of fiber. More great basic information about beans can be found in this short article. For this recipe, I use whatever beans I have on hand. You can use canned beans, but if canned goods aren’t your thing, make your own beans – it’s easy! Rinse your dried beans carefully to ensure no dirt or other foreign matter; soak your clean beans in plenty of fresh water overnight; in the morning simply drain, rinse well, and then boil in fresh water until tender. That’s it! Now your dried beans are ready for use in this or any other recipe. Bean Salad
