Three Bean Salad With Orange Vinaigrette

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

The original recipe comes out of one of my vegetarian cookbooks. I've played with the dressing over the years and scaled it up to work more easily with canned beans. Less than 5 minutes to put it together, this is a sure fire addition to summer barbeques and potlucks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse beans and place in large container. Add red onions.
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the beans.
  3. Serve at room temperature.

I thought this was good, but next time I think I will leave the thyme out. I do love the fact that it is only 1 pt on WWatchers and ate it for that inbetween time when I get hungry it is full of fiber and protein, which is what I need to eat instead of something with empty calories. For that I thankyou very much for posting.

Loved it - loved the mix of orange juice and Dijon mustard! We cooked our beans as we had some and used them for this salad. After eating this, suddenly I feel healthier!! :) Thanks Toni!

This was a dissapointment. I was really looking forward toit becuas of the great combination of flavors and a nice, healthy content. The sauce wasn't heavy enough for our taste, it just pooled in the bottom and you didn't get very much. I even tryed chilling it over night to see if that helped. It thickened the sauce slightly, but still not enough. If I make this again, I think I'll just drop the black beans and the garbanzos. I would also add some sour cream to the sauce to thicken it up a bit as well as add some veggies or something. the dressing had a great flavor, just was't thick enough.
