5-Bean Salad

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by KelBel

I LOVE three bean salad - so it only gets better with two more types of beans. This makes a big batch of salad! Great for eating all week long. Low in calories, fat and sugar.

I have been making this same recipe for years and everyone loves it. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better. Best to stir it every day to keep the flavors incorporated. And yes, it makes a big batch! During the holidays, I make it and after about three days in the fridge, I fill 1 Qt. mason jars and give it to friends who love it. It's always a welcome gift.
