Recipes I've Shared: Three Bean Salad

From 3-bean salad is one of those quintessential American summer picnic foods. Itís comforting, protein-rich, and easy to put together quickly with pantry ingredients. 3-bean salad is usually made with canned green beans instead of the cannellini white beans Iím using here. But Iíve yet to meet a canned green bean I like, so cannellini it is.

This bean salad is traditionally dressed with a sweet and sour dressing made with vinegar, oil, and sugar. You can cut back the sugar if you want, but I wouldnít cut it out completely, or the dressing will be too acidic.
