For the Salad:

  • 1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) green beans, drained and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Prepare the Beans: 

In a large mixing bowl, combine the drained and rinsed kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and cut green beans. Toss them together gently.

Add Vegetables: 

Add the halved cherry tomatoes, finely diced red onion, diced cucumber, and chopped fresh parsley to the bowl with the beans. Mix the ingredients well to distribute evenly.

Create the Dressing: 

In a small bowl, whisk together extra-virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.

Combine Salad and Dressing: 

Pour the dressing over the bean and vegetable mixture. Gently toss everything together until the salad is well coated with the flavorful dressing.

Chill and Marinate: 

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salad for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld. This step enhances the taste and texture of the salad.

Serve and Enjoy:

Once chilled, give the salad a final toss and serve it in a decorative bowl or on a platter. Garnish with additional fresh parsley for a burst of color.

Optional Additions:

  • For extra crunch, sprinkle toasted nuts or seeds (such as sunflower seeds) over the salad just before serving.
  • Crumbled feta or goat cheese can add a creamy and tangy element.
