Notes










Tips

Expert Tips

This recipe is a variation of the summertime favorite, three bean salad. Our salad combines two popular types of canned beans, black beans and Great Northern beans.

Red wine vinegar has a stronger flavor than white vinegar. The red vinegar gives foods a dark rosy color and a slight red wine flavor.

Top filled peppers with shredded colby-Jack or Cheddar cheese and a spoonful of salsa.
