  • 1 can kidney Beans (1 x 15oz can, drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans (1 x 15oz can, drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can cannellini beans (1 x 15oz can, drained & rinsed)
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 small red onion finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 tbsp apple cider vinegar / white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp sweetener I used splenda
  • ½ tsp ground sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp mustard I used Dijon mustard - optional
  • 1 - 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 handful of flat leaved parsley chopped - optional


  • Drain and rinse the beans and place in a large serving bowl.
  • Chop the celery and red onion and add to the beans, giving it a quick mix to combine.
  • Next, make the dressing by placing all of the ingredients into a small jug or bowl and use a whisk to combine.
  • Pour the dressing over the beans and mix so that all the beans are coated with dressing.
  • Sprinkle over the parsley, if using, and stir in.
  • Although the salad can be eaten straight away, it tastes even better if left in the fridge for a couple of hours so that all the flavours can soak into the beans.
  • Bring back to room temperature before serving.
