Three-Bean Salad w/Gouda


We had a salad soiree luncheon today at work so I took this salad to get some protein in. It was very good and I got lots of compliments for it!

2 tbs honey
1 tbs Dijon mustard
1 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups steamed, cooled and chopped green beans
1 large tomato, seeded and diced
1 cup diced Smoked Gouda cheese
1/2 red onion, diced

Whisk the honey, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, & pepper in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and chill for at least 30 minutes. I made it the night before and kept it in the refrigerator (about 16 hrs) and the green beans were still crisp and the cheese was not soggy at all.

I loved it and will be making it again!
