Three Bean Salad

1 of 3 healthy recipes that I made today. All are low carb, high protein, and either vegetarian, or vegan friendly!

Serves 8-10
Ingredients
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp honey mustard
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp celery seed
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 15oz can dark red kidney beans
1 15oz can pinto beans
1 lb fresh haricot verts (green beans)
1 med red onion, small diced
1 green pepper, small diced
1 yellow bell pepper, small diced

Cooking Instructions
In a bowl combine vinegar, honey mustard, honey, celery seed, garlic, and salt & pepper. Whisk oil into the rest of the ingredients until it is emulsified.
Rinse and remove stems from green beans. Boil in a pot of water for 3-4 minutes. Remove from stove and drain immediately. Place in a bowl w/ ice and cold water. ( this chills the green beans and keeps the vibrant green color) for 2 minutes. Drain.
Add all of the beans to the bowl w/ the dressing. Add the onion and peppers. Toss together until the beans and veggies are coated with the dressing. Serve cold.
