The Three Bean Salad features an excellent combination of different beans tossed in a tantalizing lemony basil dressing. The beans offer an ideal low-cal way to consume protein and fibre, which help to keep cholesterol under check. The addition of lemon juice provides vitamin C to protect the arteries against harmful oxidative damage, as well as to improve the absorption of iron from the beans. Iron is essential to maintain normal blood flow to the heart and in turn to all parts of the body. In short, this lip-smacking Three Bean Salad is a zesty path to good health!

Tasty, healthy and filling. Beans provide the protein and go great with the lemon dressing. Low GI salad and good to have regularly.
