WW Recipe of the Day: Warm Slow Cooker 3-Bean Salad
I'm having fun putting my slow cookers through their paces this summer. They have taken up permanent residence helping me keep the kitchen cool while turning out a variety of light and healthy dishes like this warm 3-bean salad.
Everywhere I turn I am seeing easy, healthy and delicious summer slow cooker recipes: in magazines and books, as well as online.
Recipes, like this one for a warm slow cooker bean salad—an old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe—perfect for summer picnics and potlucks.
It's super simple to make. Just dump everything into your slow cooker (affiliate link), give it a stir, and let it heat on LOW for 4 to 6 hours.
Designed to be served warm, I have also been eating it cold as a tasty side dish all week.
Skinny on Slow Cooker 3-Bean Salad
Low in fat and high in fiber, this warm bean salad is a tangy, tasty way to boost your vegetable intake.
With a healthy amount of vinegar and no sugar it's tangier than a lot of the jarred and canned 3-bean salads.
If it's too zesty for your tastes, add a bit of sugar/sweetener to taste.
