3 bean salad plus wheatberries (mixed beans salad)

3 bean salad plus corn and wheat

This salad came about as I was thinking about what to make for our last Supper Club@Nöbbelövs. It's an initiative by us to have supper/dinner, partake of the Lord's supper and then watch a sermon on DVD which I brought from New Creation Church, where I was based back in Singapore. Sally, a wonderful lady had prepared a wonderful meal for us and I wanted to make a salad that's different from the normal Swedish ensemble of salad greens, peppers and tomatoes. I did a quick Google and found this three bean salad at Simply Recipes. I recently went bean-crazy and bought quite a few cans of beans without really having any idea what I would use them for but it's definitely suitable for this recipe and very simple too.


1 can mixed beans, rinsed and drained
1 can matvete/wheatberry, rinsed and drained
1/2 can corn
2 celery stalks, peeled and sliced finely
1/2 red onion, sliced finely
1 cup fresh, finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  1. In a large salad bowl, mix all the beans, wheatberries, celery, red onions and corn together.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the vinegar, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper together, making sure the sugar has dissolved before pouring it into the salad mix.
  3. Add in the parsley last, mix well and cover and let it cool in the fridge before serving.
