BBQ Side Dish – Three Bean Salad

three bean salad

This is one of those dishes that are easy to make, best to make the day before, and it’s delicious.

This recipe serves four to six and is super easy to double or triple depending on the crowd you need to feed.  It’s best to make the day before, but can be made a few hours before.

Three Bean Salad

One 16 oz. can kidney beans

One 16 oz. can green beans

One 16 oz. can wax beans

Drain the above and put in a plastic bag

Add the following to the bag

1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Close the plastic bag and mix everything around.  Place in refrigerator and when you think of it, turn the bag upside down every few hours.  If you’re short on time, you can make it the same day, but allow for a few hours for the flavors to blend.

This is one of my favorite BBQ side dishes.

    My mom makes this for every barbecue. I love it.

    I’ve never had this. Will try for next family get-together.


  4. Never buy the canned version…it’s too easy to make at home, it’s cheaper and tastes better. The hubby and I love the left-overs.


  5. Thanks for reminding me of this delicious dish. I used to make it for almost every potluck dinner, but haven’t in years. I agree — the canned version doesn’t compare, especially since it’s so easy to assemble.

    You’re right. The canned version isn’t as good. I haven’t made this in years either, but do love the tasty mix of flavors. 🙂

    I love the idea of throwing it all in a plastic bag–all that sugar and all!

    Hiding my head, because I love it but always buy the canned version. Next time, I’ll try your recipe.
