Default Three Bean Salad with Soy Vinaigrette (Salad Recipes)




Prep Time: 30 minutes or less | Cook Time: 30 minutes or less | Serves: 2

Lunch Salad American


Ingredients:


This is based on an old family recipe for three-bean salad, which we typically make with seven or more varieties of bean just to confuse the issue. The original dressing had a slightly different balance between vinegar and oil (less oil to more vinegar) and had sugar in it - I've included the latter as a variation of this recipe. The sugar makes the dressing somewhat more syrupy and changes the character of the finished salad. I find I like both versions about equally.

- 1 pound frozen Edamame
- 1 can kidney beans
- 1 can Cannellini beans (a.k.a. "white kidney beans")
- 1 carrot
- 2 stalks celery
- 1/2 large bell pepper
- optional: white and black sesame seeds

And for the vinaigrette:
- 1/3 c peanut oil
- 1/2 c rice vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
- several drops each Chili and Sesame oils
- optional variation: 1/4-1/3 c sugar (not used)

While that's boiling, open both cans of beans. Pour them into a colander and rinse thoroughly.
