Easy Three Bean Salad – Minimalist Baker Recipes




Hands holding a spoon and the side of a bowl of our easy three bean salad recipe

Introducing our GO-TO side for summer gatherings (and beyond!): three bean salad! It travels well, keeps well, and comes together fast with simple, affordable pantry staples

Plus, it’s packed with fiber, crunchy veggies, and a flavorful, herby vinaigrette that makes you want more! Who knew beans could be so irresistible!? Just 10 minutes and 1 bowl required to make this bean-filled beauty. Let us show you how!

Parsley, red onion, celery, white beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, maple syrup, and dried oregano

Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat, the more you feel GREAT! That’s how the song goes, right? 😉 Well, we say it should! Because beans are one of the best sources of fiber, and fiber is one of the keys to promoting good health!

The dressing on these beans makes it EASY to get your fiber in. Olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt, pepper, and maple syrup combine for a punchy, subtly sweet, Italian-inspired dressing!

Fresh celery and red onion provide a subtle crunch, and optional fresh parsley is a nice, herby addition if you have it around!

A trifecta of beans (chickpea, cannellini, and kidney) provide a beautiful contrast of colors and textures. Stir everything together and you may have just made the easiest, most nourishing, flavor-packed dish to hit your kitchen this summer!

We hope you LOVE this three bean salad! It’s:

& SO quick & easy!

It’s the answer for grab-and-go lunches, summer gatherings, road trips, when it’s too hot to turn on the oven, and any time you have a mostly bare fridge with celery and onions staring you down! If you want to make it into a simple meal, we think this salad would be great served with fresh greens and avocado toast.
