Traditional Three-Bean Salad

This makes a fairly traditional three-bean salad. You can use either low sodium canned kidney
beans or cook dried beans ahead of time. Hope you’ll like it as much as I do.

Ingredients: [quote_box_right]TIP: This will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, but it probably won’t last that long.[/quote_box_right]

1/4 cup (60 ml) oil
