(100 calories | 3 0 0 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
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.
