Summer salads are still in fashion and we’re sharing one of our favorite with you! There’s something special about the flavors of the Mediterranean. Whether it’s the zest and zing of the spice and oils or the absolute freshness of the ingredients, these Greek-inspired dishes are never anything short of delicious. This bean salad is a great example of mixing western and Mediterranean flavors.

There are three beans playing a prominent role in this summer salad: Garbanzo, Kidney, and green beans. Randall’s fresh Garbanzo and Kidney beans taste great alongside fresh green beans from your local farmer’s market. In fact, we suggest grabbing as many of the ingredients as you can from your weekend farmer’s market, like the balsamic vinegar, natural honey, small red onions, and parsley.

This salad is sure to be a hit at any of your outdoor gatherings, and it gives you an excuse to break out the grill basket! Enjoy.
