Isn’t it awesome when you can take something great and make it even better by doctoring it up just a little bit to suit your needs and your taste buds?  That’s exactly what we did here with Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad.

 

Our friends at Paisley Farm contacted me recently, asking if we could figure out a way to celebrate National Lasagna Day with their Four Bean Salad. I immediately thought, “The perfect accompaniment to any Italian meal, a salad!”  But not just ANY salad!

This Italian Bean Salad  was going to make any other salad look like “just a salad.” It was going to be colorful, and flavorful, it was going to have the ease of opening a jar of  Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad, adding some fresh herbs and veggies, giving it a stir and chilling it while you prepared the rest of your meal.

 

It really is just that simple.

 

A jar of Paisley Farm Four Bean salad, some cherry tomatoes, a little red onion and celery for crunch, and some fresh Italian herbs are all you need.  The prep takes about 5 minutes.

 

Give it all a toss in a bowl, and cover it and chill until ready to serve.

 

 

 

 

We served ours along side this super easy Skillet Lasagna.

The whole meal was done in about 30 minutes.

 

 

Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad is a sweet blend of kidney, garbanzo, green, and wax beans accented with freshly diced onions and red peppers. It’s convenient straight from the jar goodness makes this one of their most popular items.  Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad  is colorful and delicious and can be served and enjoyed from gourmet table settings to summer picnics, and everywhere in between.

    1. I just love bean salads — and it’s nice to be able to dress a good premade one up sometimes instead of starting from scratch, especially for those busy nights!

    2. I’ve always loved these bean salads and love the Italian spin you put on it. It would be great for a pot luck dish! I’m not giving up on my summer pot lucks!

    3. I grew up eating pickled beets and three bean salad. Though mine always came from a can/jar and was never as pretty as this one! I love all the fresh herbs added to it and how you added the fresh tomatoes! What a great way to add some umpf to it!

    4. We absolutely love Paisley Farm Four Bean and Five Bean Salads, and we buy them by the case when it’s in season to make sure we have plenty for summertime BBQs and picnics! Looking forward to trying this variation!
