    Default Five Bean Salad

    This is great as a side dish or even for lunch and soooo easy. I usually make a big batch and eat it throughout the week.

    I usually make 5 Bean Salad, but you can add more or less depending on what type of beans you like

    1 can Dark Red Kidney Beans
    1 can Canellini Beans
    1 can Pinto Beans
    1 can Cut Wax Beans
    1 can Cut Green Beans
    Fat Free Italian Dressing

    Pour all 5 cans of beans into a strainer and rinse. Place into a large resealable bowl. Add approximately 1/2 cup - 1 cup of Italian Dressing. (I dont measure, just add until it thoroughly coats beans). Add 1 packet of Splenda per can of beans (you can use more or less according to taste). Mix thoroughly. Serve.

    This can be eaten at room temperature or cold. I think it tases best the longer it has been sitting in the fridge. Make sure that if it has been sitting in the fridge for a few days you stir or shake it up again before serving.

    (I have also added black beans and chicpeas, use whatever beans you fancy most)

    When I was young my Mom used to also add chopped onion and bacon, but I do not prefer either.

    As I was looking at this I was thinking it would probably be good to add in other proteins for additional variety. I was thinking shrimp would be good, or quinoa, or brown rice, or ...............

    Now I have to go get ff Italian dressing!
