Bean Salad

Comment on this recipe

This dressing is made with less oil than most bean salads and calls for sugar substitute rather than sugar. The spices more than make up for it.

Ingredients

15-ounce can green beans, drained
15-ounce can wax beans, drained
15-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoons sugar substitute (or 3 packets)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Combine green beans, wax beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and onion in a large bowl. Mix vinegar, oil, sugar substitute, basil, garlic and salt in a small bowl. Add to vegetables and mix well. Refrigerate overnight.
