It gets hot here in Sacramento. Like, REALLY hot. Like, I want to run a bath of cold water, dump in some ice, and climb in hot.  We grill out a lot during the summer just to keep the heat out of the house. But sometimes, it’s just too hot to grill.

Nights like this call for an easy, nutritious, and so very delicious salad that I can whip up in a jiffy. This Three Bean Wild Rice Salad is a variation of the one my sister Melissa has been making us for years. I am a huge fan of this salad because it takes so few ingredients and most of them can be found in my pantry.

This recipe starts with three cans of beans. I used black, kidney, and garbanzo but any combination will work.  I love the quality of canned beans and they are just SOOOO much easier to use than making my own. I have perfectly cooked, ready-to-use beans right at my fingertips – that’s why I keep my pantry stocked with goodness like this!

To all of these gorgeous beans I add some bright, fresh flavors including cilantro, bell pepper, red onion, and a jalapeno. If you feel like it might be too spicy for your family you can either omit the jalapeno or just use half of it. Your call. My family does like things spicy so I use an entire jalapeno for this salad. On a good day, I can find all of these ingredients in my garden and that makes this dinner even better.

All the ingredients are tossed together with the wild rice blend and the salad is dressed with a somewhat sweet red wine vinaigrette using some more essential ingredients from my pantry. So simple. So delicious.
