Happy Snack

I feel so much better when I actually eat a very small snack before lunch and at tea time.  My blood sugar thanks me very well.  Usually I have a small bit of fruit and a small bit of cheese, but today I decided to make some marinated beans.  I love the marinated chickpeas that I make, but today I wanted to make a version of 3-bean salad.  My aunt in Houston makes 3 bean salad and I always loved it, but most recipes are way too sweet.  Here’s what I came up with:

1 can each kidney beans, yellow wax beans, green beans, drained and rinsed

Small bunch of green onions, sliced thinly

all of the inner yellow stalks with leaves from a bunch of celery, sliced thinly

Juice of 1 large lemon

3 T tasty vinegar

1/3 cup oil (I used a combo of canola and olive)

2 T sugar

1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  You may need a little salt, but not much because the canned beans have quite a bit.  I think it’s tastes better chilled, but as I made this this morning around my snack time, I couldn’t resist.

  1. I always knew that I’m not the most inspired in the kitchen, but I’ve just officially given up, if this is what other people do for a snack… My poor children will never know good food.
