Easy 3 Bean Salad Recipe

Legumes make an ideal healthy snack because they are protein-rich and high in fiber.

Make this easy 3 bean salad and you'll have a healthy snack that you can eat throughout the week.

Ingredients:
540ml (19 fl oz) lima or butter beans
540ml (19 fl oz) chickpeas
398ml 14floz navy beans
I orange bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 English cucumber
2-3 green onions
1/3 tsp each sea salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
1/4c apple cider vinegar
1/3c olive oil

Directions:
Thoroughly wash and rinse the beans. Dice the cucumber and bell peppers. Slice the green onion into small rings. Combine in a mixing bowl (I like to keep the butter beans aside and add them last. They break apart very easily so too much mixing will result in a butter bean paste). Mix the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder & cayenne pepper in a separate container then drizzle over your bean salad. Mix well and then stir in your butter beans.

Enjoy!
