Move over three bean salad. There's a new kid on the block - Four Bean Salad. Tasty, colorful and easy, this summer delight is a perfect side dish at any pot luck, barbecue or simple grilled dinner. Plus, on the off-chance that there is any Four Bean Salad left over, it is a superb as a component in Salade Nicoise.
This salad was inspired by two of my favorite friends, MM & MK. We make a merry threesome and when we get together - with spouses or without - there will be good times, lots of laughter, wine (and lots of it) and good - or maybe great - food.
With MK's hubby grilling delicious chicken shish kebabs, MM providing a gorgeous and scrumptious tomato tart, I knew I had to up my bean salad game. And so, this Four Bean Salad was created - to honor the proposition that just because you want to do yourself proud, doesn't mean that you have to spend all afternoon in the kitchen.
