Football parties, potlucks and BBQ’s all have one thing in common for us and that means that we are asked to bring something.  I don’t have any problem with this but sometimes fall short on time.  Those are the times that I fall back on this trusty Black and White Bean Salad.  I know it’s going to be a hit no matter the venue and it’s rare that I bring home leftovers.

I’ve asked myself often why is this Black and White Bean Salad such a hit?  I have decided that it’s usually one of the most different things on the menu and there is never competition of different bean salads.  That’s always helpful!  I also like this salad because it’s very frugal if you stock up on a variety of beans when they are on sale.  I make sure my cupboards are well stocked when they go on sale for $.88 which means this recipe is very frugal for a crowd!

    I have to try this! I’m fairly new to your site, but I love how delicious your meals look and especially that you’re cost concious.

    No cook meals are a hit for me because I’m a blogger and I work full-time outside of the home. Plus, my S.O. hates vegetables, so I try to compensate with legumes and fruits. I am able to slip a few veggies in here and there. This seems like a perfect fit.
