Hi guys! A long time ago back when we didn't have kids Ornan and I were full on vegan. Because of that I've found some really cool healthy recipes that wouldn't normally come to mind. It was a really fun time to explore vegetables and grains and figure ways to cook them differently. Beans were a huge staple then and the various ways you can cook/make beans would boggle your mind.

This recipe is a super simple bean recipe and total cook time is like... I don't know...10 minutes depending on how fast you can handle a can opener. I love that this uses honey rather then a whole cup of sugar to get the sweetness. Most of the recipes call for sugar and I'm not into it. I first tried Three Bean Salad at Costco and immediately went home and made it. Mainly cause I'm cheap and didn't want to pay that much when I could just make it. It came out so tasty and now we double the recipe to be able to munch on it for the next couple of days. 

Added bonus, it's super healthy and busy mom friendly. You get the best taste by letting the salad sit and marinate, but it has a clean light taste if you just want to eat it right away. I hope you love it as much as we do!

OUR VERSION (Very minor substitutions)

1 can garbanzo beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can green beans
1/2 diced red onions
1 stalk celery diced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground dry mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayanne
Salt to taste

Mix all sauces/spices together in small bowl with olive oil. Mix all other ingredients together in big tupperware with lid. Combine sauce with bean mix and stir. Refrigerate for two hours and then turn tupperware upside down and put back in refrigerator for another two hours. Then eat all the goodness up!
