Three-bean salad

Recipe by:Andy Powning


  • 1 1/2 cups green snap beans
    1 1/2 cups yellow snap (wax) beans
    1 1/2 cups fresh shell beans
    1 cup roasted red peppers
    3/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
    1 clove garlic
    2/3 cup wine vinegar
    2 tsp sugar
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp pepper


Trim and blanch green and yellow beans; cook shell beans; cool. Combine the green peppers and onions. Halve the garlic and place it in a jar along with the vinegar, sugar, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Shake well. Let stand for 5 minutes and shake again. Discard garlic; toss dressing with vegetables until thoroughly combined.

You can substitute canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained, for the shell beans.
