What would you say if I told you that all the beans for this salad come from a can? I tell you no lie. This beautifully colorful bean salad is made with three different canned beans. And as a Cans Get You Cooking Canbassador, I’m all about a good recipe using cans! These beans are right on with the nutritional value of fresh beans. And they sure make this recipe easy! If you can open a can, you can make this salad.

I didn’t even have to go to the grocery store for this recipe. I had everything in needed in my pantry – or “Cantry.” I’m all stocked with canned foods that I can use for different recipes throughout the week. And I feel good about what I’m serving my family.

Three Bean Salad is also great for Thanksgiving!
