My garden is overwhelmed with the smell of fresh herbs growing and I wanted to incorporate some of those flavors to create an all time American favorite salad for our Memorial Day celebration. Three Bean Salad is a simple dish that can easily be transported to any family picnic and one that is very flavorful. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Three Bean Salad with Garden Fresh Herbs


1 15 ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

2 cups frozen green beans, slightly cooked, chill in cold water and drained (frozen green beans are more colorful than the can)

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped cucumber

1/4 cup Italian parsley

1 sprig of lemon thyme

1 sprig of dill

1 sprig of oregano


1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


In a large mixing bowl, add kidney, garbanzo and green beans. Add onion, cucumber and fresh herbs. Set aside.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Add dressing to the bean mixture.

Chill for several hours to allow the flavor of fresh herbs and dressing to incorporate into the beans. Serve with your favorite family picnic or BBQ dishes.
