Classic Four-Bean Salad (Recipe Blog Hop)

I found this healthy summer side dish an an old Weight Watchers cookbook. Give it a try. It was really tasty!


1 cup thawed frozen lima beans
1 cup canned red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 celery stalk, diagonally sliced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/4 cup fat-free creamy peppercorn ranch salad dressing
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Refrigerate, covered, until the flavors are blended, at least 1 hour. (Makes 6 servings)

This is a blog hop so head over to Jill Savage's blog to find more great recipe ideas.


  1. Tristi, I'm not much of a bean person but I'm trying to serve them to my family more. Thanks for this...I'm going to give it a try!

  2. Sounds great; we're trying to eat more beans in our family, too!
