Three Bean Greek Salad

I wanted to share the greek salad that I threw together this weekend!!! I love cucumber salad, but it isn’t quiet filling enough to call it lunch so the beans add in some extra fiber and protein to help out with that. This is a super easy dump and mix recipe.

What You Need

1 cucumber, diced

1 container feta cheese

Couple hand fulls of fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped into 1 inch pieces

1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 purple onion, diced

1/2 can of diced black olives (this is still good if you dont like olives, just omit)


1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons lemon juice (I used from a bottle since I always have it on hand)

1/2 tablespoon oregano

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

What You Do

–Boil water and add in green beans, cook for 3-4 minutes

–While the beans are cooking, mix together your dressing and set aside.

–Add all ingredients to bowl and toss until well mixed. Refrigerate.

    This looks amazing! I’ve been eating chopped salads for lunch the past month but am finding myself starving again around 3:00. The beans definitely make this more filling!

    This looks so good! Lettuce-less salads are my favorite, so I love finding new recipes to make.

    Umm, this sounds so good, but I will be omitting the olives, because gross. I love summer because of all the fun salads that don’t include just lettuce.

    Yum! I’m a huge fan of Greek salad and probably never would have thought to throw in beans for some extra protein! This is the perfect light option for a lunch!

    Yum- I love dump/mix/eat recipes! 🙂 Do you taste the dijon mustard at all? That’s one thing I do not love haha, but I’m assuming with all the other flavors you don’t notice it!?

    My husband would LOVE this salad. I want to make it, but minus the feta on mine. Just preference though.

  • Reply Laura June 22, 2017 at 9:59 pm

    Yum, this looks delicious! I don’t buy many beans because I’m not sure what to do with them but this looks so good!

    I finally tried this out and LOVED it. I didn’t have any lemon juice or oregano on hand, so I subbed with key lime juice and Italian seasoning. (Still works beautifully.) The only issue I had was that it was far more filling than I anticipated, so I’ll have to divide it into smaller serving sizes next time.
