Hot Eats and Cool Reads: 5 Bean Salad Recipe

5 Bean Salad Recipe

As you may already know, I LOVE salads!! They are my favorite summertime side dish.

This 5 Bean Salad turned out especially good! I love the tartness of the vinegar based sauce. It goes perfectly with the rest of the ingredients. If you don't like some of the beans used in this recipe, you can definitely substitute with your favorite beans! This recipe is a winner. Both my sister and I ate a few servings of it with our meal! Yum!

This recipe was created using ingredients from Del Monte!

Thanks to my sister, Shannon for taking the photo for this post! You can visit her blog Speaking in Plain Shamish here!
