Best Bean Salad Recipes

These bean salad recipes are perfect for grilling and picnics. I really enjoy them both, the Southwest Bean Salad is so fresh - love it with chips.

The three bean salad would be fantastic to make in the summer when you can use beans out of your garden. 

What's great about these recipes is that you do not have to turn the oven on.  Wonderful in the summer, huh?
