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
- In a large salad bowl, mix all the beans, wheatberries, celery, red onions and corn together.
- 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.
- Add in the parsley last, mix well and cover and let it cool in the fridge before serving.
