Mediterranean 3 Bean Salad

It feels like it is finally here in NJ which also means we have dinners where my kitchen stays relatively clean with no pots or pans to wash just bowls full of yummy goodness, fresh ingredients and meat on the grill. One of my family's favorites.. yes even the kids.. is Mediterranean 3 Bean Salad!

Here's how you can make it too!

3 cans of beans (I like garbanzo, cannelli and red kidney)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup creamy Feta cheese
Juice of 2 lemons
1 yellow or red pepper
1/2 red onion
1/2 pint of cherry tomatoes halved
1/4 cup chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Start by draining and rinsing all three cans of beans in a colander. Then put in a large bowl. Chop pepper, onion, tomatoes and parsley and add to bowl. Juice both lemons and add to bowl. Toss in the feta cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Mix well and enjoy!
Oh yum!
We served our bean salad with grilled chicken, grilled potatoes and salad.

So light and refreshing.. perfect for a hot summer night or to bring to a BBQ! Super easy and really impressive in flavor!
Have fun grilling this summer!
