Three Bean Salad - Farm Girl Fresh


Three Bean Salad

This delicious high-protein, high-fiber salad is packed full of nutrients! A while back, we took samples of our Three Bean Salad to one of the coops who sells our beans. Everyone loved it and was asking if the in-store deli had it available for purchase! Here’s the recipe so you can make it fresh, yourself, using our black beans and light red kidney beans. Our beans are grown on our certified organic farm in Minnesota. Meet the farmer who grow these nutritious, specialty beans to know where your food comes from. This colorful salad is a great side dish to bring to family gatherings or potluck dinners!
