This bean salad recipe looks simple to make and very tasty! I'm going to try t his recipe for an upcoming potluck BBQ i will be attending soon. This kind of salad is great because it is tasty and filling and a great alternative for vegetarians. This recipe is also dairy and gluten free so everyone can enjoy it! I usually add chickpeas and a few other types of beans to make it even heartier! I'm wondering what the purpose of soaking the beans is sugar is?

Would Like Recipes that are gluten and wheat free.

When do you add the 3 cans of beans, do you drain them before? Step # 2 , #4 & # 5 does not appear in the list of ingredients.

Hi Vita, you should add the 3 cans of beans along with all the other vegetables in Step 1. Do not drain them. Hope this helps! -- Editors of RecipeLion

Do you drain the vegetables? In step #5 there isn't any salt in the above recipe, how much is added? Are the green beans, wax beans and kidney beans chopped as stated in step #1
