Bean Salads

Delicious Bean Salad Recipe Ideas

Bean salad is one of the most popular types of salad because it is hearty, satisfying, filling, and delicious. Beans are used in many dishes. They feature in hot dishes like chili con carne, but they are also great in salad recipes because they are nice served chilled. Toss well-drained, cooked beans with crunchy ingredients like diced celery or red onion, and add your favorite herbs and spices, as well as a splash each of oil and vinegar. Some bean salads are served with mayonnaise or a creamy dressing but vinaigrette works especially well with most bean salads. You can serve a bean salad recipe chilled or at room temperature.

Types of Beans in a Bean Salad Recipe

Try black-eyes peas which are also known as cow peas, chickpeas, Edamame which are also known as soybeans, plus red kidney beans, lentils, lima beans, or any other legumes you like. You can use fresh or canned beans to make a bean salad recipe. Corn kernels are also tasty in bean salad, as well as adding a splash of yellow to the brown, red, and black beans and peas in there. Beans and corn “pop” in the mouth and many people love this special texture. Bean salad is more filling than green salad or tossed salad, so serve a small scoop of bean salad instead of a whole plateful, perhaps on a bed of mixed greens. Bean salad is also nice served alongside meat, poultry or fish. Bean salad is easy to make and keeps for a few days in the refrigerator.
