Recipe: Three Bean Salad

I made this dish over the weekend for my friend Nisha's Fourth of July party. It is a great dish to serve during the summer, especially for barbecue's and potluck gatherings. The celery, parsley and rosemary give this dish a nice, fresh taste. Best of all - you can throw all the ingredients into one bowl. And it takes no more than 15 minutes!!

I enjoy eating this on its own, over salad greens, or as a side dish.

Serves 8

1 15 oz can kidney beans
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans
1 15 oz can cannellini beans
2 celery stalks, chopped finely
1/2 red onion, chopped finely
1 cup fresh parsley, finely cut
1 Tbsp fresh finely cut rosemary
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, unfiltered
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/5 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes to let flavors meld. Taste and serve.
