Three words for you ladies… “Three Bean Salad.”

I’ve had just as many woman try this recipe as I’ve had men… but never have I had as many men RAVE about how much they loved it. This dish is HEALTHY, QUICK and SIMPLE to make (not to mention dirt cheap). The recipe is an assortment of beans & veggies which is all then tossed in a yummy sweet tasting dressing. The best thing about this recipe is you can improvise on ingredients without sacrificing taste.

Three Bean Salad

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed

1 can black eyed peas, drained & rinsed

1 can shoepeg corn, drained & rinsed

1 green pepper, chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

3-4 stalks celery

1 small red onion, chopped

Toss all of the above ingredients together and then add the dressing


3/4 c. sugar

3/4 c. vinegar (I like to use apple cider vinegar)

3/4 c. water

1/4 c. oil (I like to use vegetable oil)

Bring mixture to a boil, remove from heat and let cool. When cooled down pour the mixture dressing over the veggies and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
