I love making meals and snacks ahead of time. One super easy thing you can prep ahead is beans. I have many meals I prep ahead of time with both dried beans and canned beans.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy beans during the warmer months is with my cold Italian Three Bean Salad recipe. It’s super easy to make and it tastes really yummy too! You can eat it all on its own or dress it up by adding some chopped veggies to it.

It’s also great added to greens either in a wrap or in a salad. And I find because of the homemade Italian dressing, it’s kid friendly too!
