Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • This is a great recipe to make with your children. Older children can chop the vegetables while younger children can empty the cans and mix the salad.
  • Substitute other canned beans or sweet pepper if needed. It wont affect the flavor very much.
  • Use low-sodium canned beans to reduce the sodium.
