Ingredients
  • 1 15-ounce can great northern beans (or cannellini)
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans)
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans
  • 1/4 cup fresh snipped parsley
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a fine mesh strainer or colander, drain and rinse your beans with cold water. Add your beans to a medium bowl.

  3. In a liquid measuring cup, add your vinegar, olive oil and seasonings. Whisk them to blend, then pour the dressing over the beans. Toss the bean salad with two spoons to mix it.
