Beans are just one of those household staples, right?  So why not just throw a bunch together and enjoy all the different flavors at once!

My favorite thing about this bean salad is the perfect balance between melt in your mouth and crunch. 

The beans are soft and the celery and onions are crunchy.  It is completely satisfying and makes my mouth happy with each bite!

How Long Will Bean Salad Keep in the Fridge?

4 Bean Salad, if stored properly, will last for 3-5 days in the fridge.  You will want to store it in an airtight container to limit exposure to air. 

In fact, if you are making this ahead of time, just throw all the ingredients into a glass storage container and pop the lid on and shake it up.  Then just store it in the fridge.  Simple!  And one less dish you have to wash.

Can I Use Canned Beans?

You sure can.  I did, in fact.  I was going to use fresh green beans or frozen green beans but I decided to just use canned green beans like the rest of them!  

I still try to use organic to the best of my ability and I make sure the quality is high.  Canned veggies are last on my list, but there are recipes, such as this 4 bean salad, where they work perfect and are the preferred ingredient.

If you love the convenience of canned beans, be sure to check out this gluten-free sausage and white bean salad.  Just as easy and tasty as this one!

Important Recipe Notes

Make sure to rinse and cook beans as needed.  Ex, if you are using raw red kidney beans vs canned red kidney beans or raw green beans vs canned green beans.

If you use all canned beans, you should be good to go with simply rinsing them.  But please make sure you following instructions on the can or package.

How To Make 4 Bean Salad

(make sure to soak, rinse, cook beans as needed)

4 bean salad

In a medium bowl, you’ll want to combine the oil, vinegar and sweetener. 

They are not going to want to combine fully and that is ok.  Just give it a good mix and call it a day!

Then it is just a matter of throwing in the rest of the ingredients and tossing!  If you have extra liquid at the very bottom, that is ok.  It actually makes it nice when you want to “re-toss” to keep it nicely coated with flavor.
