My favorite 3 bean salad! This is such an easy dish to meal prep for the week ahead🙌🏼 plus it’s packed with fiber (hello beans!), antioxidants, and protein.

You can add any beans or veggies you have on hand to make this dish!


This recipe uses a blend of chickpeas and red beans, all tossed in a tangy olive oil dressing. It's a classic salad that’s so easy to make and is the perfect addition to almost any meal or by itself! It's hearty, yet light, and so versatile. All the colorful veggies and high fiber beans are packed with anti-inflammatory benefits.
