This Three Bean Salad with Honey Vinaigrette is my absolute favorite hands-down bean salad!  I have actually been known to eat this for breakfast it is that good.  And then eat it again for lunch… and then again for dinner, ha. Not even going to lie, this bean salad is where it’s at.

This Three Bean Salad with Honey Vinaigrette Is:

  • Sweet
  • Tangy
  • Earthy
  • Hearty
  • Protein Packed
  • Gluten Free, Vegetarian, and can easily be Vegan by replacing the honey with another natural sweetener

This wonderfully tangy and and sweet bean salad is great for a quick lunch or snack, and goes great with a vegan burger, veggie dog, or anything from the BBQ.  And like most marinated salads: the beauty of this is that the longer it sits, the yummier it gets!

How do I Make 5 Bean Salad with Honey Vinaigrette?

For the Salad

Wash the fresh green beans and place them in a medium pot with 3/4 cups of water.  Place a lid on the beans and steam them for about 6-8 minutes, until they are a bit softer but still have a bit of crunch to them.  Once cooled, cut them into bite sized pieces, I’ve found that 3 to4 pieces per bean is perfect!

In a large mixing bowl (See *TIP below) combine the green beans with the chickpeas and kidney beans, drained and rinsed.  Chop the yellow bell pepper into small bite sized pieces, and add.  Finely chop the parsley and green onion and add to the bowl as well.

(TIP: Use your biggest mixing bowl.  No really, the BIGGEST one you have because there are a lot of things going in here, and it needs to be properly mixed!)

For the Dressing

In a pint sized mason jar: juice the lemons, and combine with the rest of the dressing ingredients.  Shake, shake, shake until the dressing is a smooth consistency and pour over the bean salad.  Cover the salad and place in the fridge overnight so the dressing soaks into the beans, and everything is perfect.  In the morning, I like to transfer the bean salad in to single-serving sized 8oz or pint sized mason jars I can just throw into my bag and have at work!  For larger storage, quart jars will work too!
