A nice low fat three bean salad recipe that my mom came up with to help me get more protein. So good, especially good as leftovers (I suspect because it gets a chance to 'marinate' further)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (15 ounce) can cut green beans, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 34 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Cover and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, at least 3 hours.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

I’m on a high protein diet therefore I am trying all sort of high protein recipes. I tried this recipe and it came out delicious. I can save it in the fridge and have it ready with grilled chicken or any type of grilled meat.
