Paisley Farm Asian Bean Salad
Paisley’s bean salad is chock full of goodness containing snow peas, garbanzo beans, edamame, and kidney beans coupled with traditional Asian spices. Mixing this fantastic blend with a few simple ingredients increases the umami taste for even more layers of flavor. Always gluten-free and dairy free this bean dip is loaded with plant-based protein which will help stabilize your blood sugar and keep you full for hours.
I always keep a variety of Paisley Farm Bean Salads on hand for an easy side dish, simply pop the lid off the jar and serve. But I have also experimented with them in recipes and have always loved the outcome! Take this Five Bean Chicken Chili for instance. Yum!
The idea for this Asian Bean Dip came to mind the last time I was whipping up a batch of Hot Taco Five Bean Dip. This one has a great Mexican flare to it. But when I started thinking about a way to give it an Asian twist, I decided to run with the chilled hummus route.
I think the ginger with the Asian Bean Salad just works so incredibly well. Plus, it’s a quick holiday dip that is literally ready in about 10 minutes. No baking is required. Who can’t use a simple recipe this crazy time of year?!
Last year, I made this beautiful beet hummus with Paisley Farm’s Sweet Pickled Beets, and we devoured it! Some of our other favorite dips over the years with Paisley Farm products are Dilled Brussels Sprout Dip, Warm and Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Dip, and this lovely Mediterranean Inspired Cheeseboard with Cauliflower Hummus!
Look at how gorgeous Paisley Farm Asian Bean Salad is, right out of the jar! So bright, colorful, and full of texture!
Ingredients Needed For Asian Bean Dip Recipe
Find the complete measurements and instructions at the bottom of this post in the printable recipe card.
Paisley Farm Asian Bean Salad – I used one jar of Paisley Farm Asian Bean salad, drained.
Garlic – I took the shortcut with the garlic and used the minced garlic in the jar. You are welcome to mince your own fresh.
Ginger – Shortcut here, too. I used jarred ginger puree but feel free to use freshly grated ginger.
Soy sauce – I used low-sodium soy sauce. You can also use tamari.
Sesame oil – I used 1 ½ Tablespoons of sesame oil. Don’t substitute regular oil, the sesame oil imparts a nice flavor. Sesame oil is usually available in traditional grocery stores but if you can’t find it you may need to make a trip to an Asian grocery store.
Green onions – I used the whites for the dip and the greens as garnish.
Sesame seeds – I used these for garnish as well. Make sure to toast them for a nice deep sesame flavor.
Serve this pureed bean salad with Wonton Chips or raw veggies.

- What is bean dip made of? Bean dip’s main ingredient is beans. There is really no rhyme or rule about which beans to use. It’s pretty much a matter of choice. You can use fresh, canned, jarred, or dried beans that have been soaked and boiled to make bean dip.
- Is bean dip good for weight loss? Bean dip is rich in protein and fiber so it can be part of a healthy weight loss diet as it will keep you full for hours which may mean less snacking on the not-so-healthy foods we sometimes reach for.

- Is a garbanzo bean the same as a chickpea? Yes, they are one and the same.
- Can I use olive oil instead of sesame oil to make this Asian dip? Technically any oil will work but in order to be true to the Asian-inspired flavor it is best to use sesame oil so you get a dip that’s more like an Asian hummus.
