Roasted veggies. My love, my heart. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I can pretty easily demolish an entire tray of roasted veggies all by myself. 

So, it should also come as no surprise that I had to go and mess with a classic three bean salad by roasting it up.

I actually had never even heard of three bean salad until a few years ago. Yes, I most definitely live under a giant rock.

But even then, I will admit that I avoided it for the longest time. Because, confession: there are certain canned veggies that sort of weird me out. Green beans, mushrooms, corn? Nope nope nope.

And so many recipes for three bean salad use them. Well, the green beans that is.

But we’re going fresh today!

Fresh green beans, fresh cherry tomatoes. We roast em’ up in the oven until tender and the tomatoes start to shrivel. It adds so much awesome flavor.

And just makes me happy.

You can make it ahead and it doesn’t need to be reheated. Not too shabby indeed.

Ingredients

For the veggies:

  • 2 medium shallots, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • pinch of pepper

For the salad:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey*
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon worcestershire sauce (vegan or regular)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives

Instructions

For the veggies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Add the shallot, garlic, tomatoes and green beans to a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Toss to combine and spread in an even layer.
  3. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once halfway through, until the green beans are tender and the tomatoes are slightly shriveled.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.

For the salad:

  1. While the veggies are cooling, add the olive oil, honey, mustard, vinegar, worcestershire, salt and pepper to a small bowl. Whisk vigorously to combine.
  2. To a large bowl, add the chickpeas, kidney beans, basil, chives and the cooled veggies. Toss to combine. Pour in the desired amount of dressing (see notes**) and toss again to coat. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve!

Notes

*To keep this vegan - use pure maple syrup instead of the honey.

**I use all of the dressing. It does seem like a little much at first but after it chills in the fridge and has time to sit and meld, I feel like it’s the perfect amount. But you could always add less and then add more later. Do whatever works for your own preference.
