Great recipes don’t always need exotic ingredients, complicated preparation steps or a lot of fuss. Some great recipes just need fresh ingredients!
Spring is here and soon you’ll be able to head to your local farmer’s market (or you garden at home if you are lucky enough to have one!) to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies for your kitchen. With just a couple of those ingredients and a jar of your favorite Randall Beans you can make this super fresh and simple bean salad perfect for spring and summer time!
For this recipe we used our brand new Ultimate 4 Bean Mix – containing our kidney, black, pinto and great northern beans, soon to be available at a Wal-Mart near you – because we enjoy the mix of all the different flavors each bean bring, but feel free to use your favorite variety!
That is the real beauty of this recipe, you can really make it your way! We used a combination of fresh tomatoes, sweet corn, basil and garlic topped with a nice vinaigrette, but there is no limit to the possible ingredients.
Have some fresh red onion or bell peppers lying around? They would be great in this salad as well! We haven’t included quantities in this recipe because the amount of each ingredient depends on your tastes. For our salad, we preferred an equal ratio of beans, tomatoes and corn, but you may prefer to use a smaller jar of beans and less or more of a certain ingredient. Make this salad the way you want!
So fresh and so simple, this is a great salad to mix up on Sunday and have for lunch the rest of the week. This is also a recipe perfect for prepping and storing in one of our jars! Our empty jars are great for meal prepping. Putting the dressing in the bottom and loading the salad on top lets you just give it a good shake and you are ready to eat, like this recipe.
