Kaw-Cajun 4-Bean Salad

This Kaw-Cajun 4-bean salad is an incredible take on a traditional bean salad. Chez John (of Fat Johnny’s Front Porch fame) gave me this recipe a few years ago. It has become a favorite of ours. It’s not the beans that set this salad apart from the rest, it’s the dressing. Who would’ve thought that tomato soup in a bean salad would be so good that you’d just want to drink the liquid all day?

Kaw-Cajun 4-Bean Salad

This recipe makes a pretty good sized batch, but you’ll want to double or triple it for a big family get-together. And be sure to make it a day ahead, because the beans get even happier after an all-night soak in the dressing.

Also try my southern kidney bean salad and my tangy bean salad. And my all-time classic favorite, my mom’s bean salad.
