Three Bean Salad with Feta and Mint Dressing

A hearty bean salad with a delightful tang of feta cheese and refreshing zip of fresh mint. This salad is great for backyard gatherings and travels well for a picnic at the park.


  1. Put the vinegar and mint in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil, then stir in the cheese. Taste for salt and season with pepper. To make a creamier dressing, mash the cheese with the oil first, then combine with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the green beans and blanch until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and cool under cold running water; drain well.
  3. Combine the green beans, garbanzo beans, and Great Northern beans in a large bowl. Pour dressing over the top and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Serves 6
