7 Bean Salad

I love bean salads. That nice vinegar hit, crunchy vegetables, and a little sweet. And of course, lots and lots of beans. I make this 7 bean salad (which makes a big batch) and keep it on hand for days and days. It’ll keep up to two weeks, so it makes the perfect side dish for an easy lunch. Just toss some burgers or dogs on the grill and serve them up with this great salad.

This salad is also the perfect way to use up any old cans of beans you might have in the back of the pantry. I usually stock up on canned beans before winter (they are perfect to have on hand in case of emergencies), and try to use them by the end of the following year. You can use just about any beans (or peas) that you have on hand in this salad. My scaled-back bean salad recipe is similar to this 7-bean salad but is a little easier to make. Give it a try too!
