Reid's Beloved Tangy Bean Salad Recipe

It's really strange, but my pickiest eater just loves bean salad.  Luckily, it's the sort of recipe you can make when you only have pantry staples.  It's flexible and easy.

Reid's Bean Salad:
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can green beans, drained
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/3 cup. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Mix together last four ingredients and toss with beans.  Refrigerate, stirring on occasion, for four hours before serving.

Bean salad used to be a staple of USMC field messes during the 1970's and 1980's. I think because the cooks could make it out of canned vegetables when there was no fresh food. Field messes had to serve meat, a starchy vegetable, and some kind of salad along with bread in those days.
I don't think I've eaten any bean salad since then......

Now that is something that I like as well, he might like it as it is nice visually, tastes good and is kind of finger food if nobody is watching.

We have or Patty makes a bean salad that we love. Adults like it better than kids in the 14-15 year range.

That does look so good. Isn't it fun watching the kids as they begin to see what tastes good to them. And, I think it's essential to start them early on different foods.
