Heart Healthy Best Five Bean Salad

As per request here is the Five Bean Salad that is now a staple in Lous diet. He seems to love it although he did say the onion can be a bit overpowering so you may want to keep that in mind if you happen to make this.

1 – 14.5 ounce can of Green beans, rinsed and drained

1 – 14.5 ounce can of Wax Beans, rinsed and drained

1 – 14.5 ounce can of Garbanzo Bean (AKA chickpeas) , rinsed and drained

1 – 14.5 ounce can of Black Beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion

1/2 Cup Chopped Celery

1/2 Cup Salad Oil ( I used a combination of Saflower, Sunflower and Canola oils. Loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids. Good for the heart)

1/2 Cup Vinegar (I used red wine vinegar)

1/2 Tsp Black Pepper ( I used fresh ground black pepper)

Directions :

In a large bowl mix together all ingredients well. Then refrigerate overnight or at least eight hours so all the flavors can marry together and the beans can slightly harden..

Serve as a meal or a side dish..

Enjoy!
