A Delicious Picnic Salad

Three bean salad is a combination of tangy and sweet. It combines a generous portion of healthy protein filled beans with a delicious dressing. It is full of flavor, color, and fiber. This salad is easy to make, tastes great, and feeds several people. It makes a perfect dish to bring on a picnic or to a covered dish gathering. The longer it sits in the refrigerator, the more the flavors blend and enhance each other. It can be kept for about a week in the refrigerator. Great accompaniment for grilled pork chops or chicken.
