Navy Bean Salad

Kathy W


This salad is full of flavor. I like using the sweet mini pepper for lots of color and the celery gives it an added crunch. It's quick to fix, but allow for time to marinate. It can easily be doubled.

If you like things spicy, add some jalapeno that has been diced into small pieces.

Note: If you can't find canned navy beans, you can use great white northerns or any other white bean.
