6 bean salad

My mom made her six bean salad one Sunday I was coming home.  I don’t remember her ever making this before… and part of me wants to ask why because it is YUMMY.  And extremely simple.  You know I like yummy and simple.  It’s so simple, you don’t even have to turn on the stove.  Yeah, that simple.

You’ll need:

  • 6 cans of various beans (such as garbanzo, green, cannellini , black, pinto, kidney, etc.  Whatever your heart desires!)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup cider vinegar

empty the beans into a sieve, rinse and let drain.  whisk together the honey and vinegar in a small bowl.  once the beans are mostly dry, transfer them to a serving bowl and pour the honey and vinegar dressing over top.  add salt and pepper, toss and serve!

I feel like I’m cheating you all out of a substantial post but really, this is it.  it’s the perfect side dish to whip up in a pinch during some hot summer days.  i would suggest to serve it cold, because that’s how i prefer it, but it is also yummy room temperature.

  1. Looks great. Think I’ll try it with some onions added. Love the onions.

    Don’t you mean Six Pean Salad? Or will that be a separate entry?
